The Manchester Quantified Self meetup (#mancQS) is modeled on the Bay Area Quantified Self Show & Tell meetings started in 2008 by Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly in the Bay Area. Your host for the Manchester Meetup is Ian Forrester (@cubicgarden (https://twitter.com/cubicgarden))
This meetup happens a once every 2 months for people who take advantage of various personal self-tracking tools and methods to gain more knowledge about themselves, others and the world around them. Come share what you are doing and learn from others. Topics include, but are not limited to:
Self-experimentationBehaviour monitoringLifelogging, lifecaching, lifestreamingLocation trackingDigitising body infoBiometric dataPsychological self-assessmentsMedical self-diagnosticsPersonal genome sequencing
Manchester QS meetup consists of Show & Tell where people present or simply talk for 10-15 mins about their experience and experiments with self-tracking, quantifying and self-hacking whether it involves devices, applications or not.
This part lasts till about 8.30pm. We then move next door to Terrance or Common, which is an essential and integral part of the meetup, as important as the first part the ‘Show & Tell’. If you can join us, I encourage you to do so. Not only it’s always good fun, the conversations are equally interesting.
