If you are self-tracking in any way -- health stats, biofeedback, life-logging, mood monitoring, biometrics, athletics, etc. -- come and share your methods, results and insights. 6:00 - 7:00 pm DEMO HOUR & SOCIAL TIME Are you a toolmaker? Come demo your self-tracking gadget, app, project or idea that you're working on and share with others in our "science fair for adults." If you are making something useful for self-trackers – software, hardware, web services, or data standards – please demo it in this workshop portion of the Show&Tell. Please let us know you will be bringing something to the Show&Tell, so we can be prepared for you. 7:00 - 8:00 pm QS SHOW&TELL TALKS If you'd like to talk about your personal self-tracking story, please let us know in your RSVP or email me (JoshuaKot at gmail dot com), so we can discuss your topic and how much time you'll need. In your talk, you should answer the three prime questions (http://quantifiedself.com/2011/09/our-three-prime-questions/): What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn? If you've never been to a meetup before, you can get a sense of what the talks are like from watching videos of previous QS talks (http://vimeo.com/groups/quantifiedself/videos). 8:00 - 9:00 pm MORE SOCIAL TIME & NETWORKING Talk to the speakers, chat with new and old friends, ask other people what they're tracking, and generally hang out and have a great time.
