Quantified Self is returning to Greenpoint, Brooklyn!
Help us spread the word and get folks from Brooklyn who are doing any kind of self-tracking projects. Talk to artists, hackers, engineers, scientists, students and tell them to come share with the group in Greenpoint.
Please come and join us on Wednesday, June 1st for our 12th Show&Tell. We will gather in Greenpoint for an evening of sharing our projects, demonstrations, tools and ideas. If you are self-tracking or experimenting in any way -- habits, health, mood, physical activity, thoughts, location, spending, relationships, etc. -- come and share your methods, results and insights with us.
6 -7:00 pm SOCIAL HOUR AND NETWORKING
Come early and connect with others who share your interest in QS. We'll have refreshments on hand to get us started.
7:00 - 8:30 pm QS SHOW & TELL TALKS
Presentations will start at 7pm. We save our talks for personal accounts of self-tracking and self-experimentation, rather than sales pitches. If you have testimonials/stories from users of your device or application, we welcome those. We're also interested in data visualizations, gadgets and tools that you've created to track and make meaning of something about yourself.
If you'd like to give a talk, please let us know in advance so we can discuss your topic and how much time you'll need. We keep the length of presentations to 5 minutes + 5 minutes for Q&A. If you have slides to show, feel free but it's not required.
QS SPONSORS: OUR THANKS TO //A p K media
Our venue for this Show&Tell is generously being provided by Daniel Navetta and the incredible team at //A p K media (http://apkmediasite.com/). The creative media and music agency //A p K media has renovated a large loft space in Greenpoint that is the hub of their company but more importantly a community resource for talented and ambitious filmmakers, artists and musicians in New York.
GETTING TO GREENPOINT
Address is 97 Green Street, Loft G11 in Greenpoint. Closest subway is the G train, or the 7 in Long Island City (which requires walking over the Pulaski bridge). Feel free to hopstop it.
Less than a month away is our first Quantified Self Conference (http://quantifiedself.com/conference/) being held on May 28-29 in Mountain View, CA. Come join us for what is shaping up to be a jam-packed event.
QS SPONSORSHIP - WHAT IT IS
We use the sponsor money to pay for professional video recording and some decent refreshments, as well as to fund projects that help the larger QS community. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring our local chapter of Quantified Self or providing a venue for our Show&Tells, please let us know.
Hope to see you all on the 1st of June!
