***Updated With Our Scheduled Talks!***
We're back! It's been too long, but we're excited for us to get together again and share what we've been learning from our personal data.
Here's our agenda:
Informal Social and Gadget Time - Starting at 6pm
Come early to socialize with other QSers and share what hardware, apps, and other technologies are helping you track your life. Bring your gadgets so that we can all see them, play with them, and hear your experiences with them!
Intro and Announcements - 6:30 sharp!
After a short intro on what Quantified Self is for people who are new, Steven Jonas will share stories and highlight some fantastic talks from the recent Quantified Self conference in San Francisco, where he worked as QS's speaker coordinator.
