Quantified Self is a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking. You can learn more about this fast-growing, worldwide movement at http://quantifiedself.com .
Self-tracking covers a wide spectrum. Some are working to improve their health and fitness by tracking weight, exercise, sleep, or nutrition. Others want to gain insight into their emotions. Still others aim to improve their productivity and effectiveness by measuring how they spend their time.
Our Portland group meetups follow the QS model -- a mix of short presentations, spontaneous discussions, and free-form networking. You'll hear more personal stories and practical experiences than theoretical lectures, and demos are particularly enjoyable. Anyone is welcome to speak - just email the organizer before the meeting.
Whether you're already on a technology-powered journey to self-improvement, or just curious about the concept, come join us!
This is our monthly informal meetup for the Portland QS community. The idea is for us to get together and talk about what we are working on and learning from our data and self-experiments.
There won't be formal talks, but if you want to show others what you are working on, there will be a projector on hand.
Food and drinks are going to be potluck style. If you can, bring something that you can share with others. It doesn't need to be elaborate. A simple snack is great.
If you plan on coming, please mention something that you would like to discuss as a comment on the event. It may be a project that you are currently doing or a more general topic. Looking forward to seeing what you are up to!
