Please join us on June 19th for another night of self-tracking presentations, sharing lessons learned and the exhibition of QS tools.

We'll be at Stanford School of Medicine this time, so be sure to RSVP early to grab your spot. Talks will be strictly limited to 7.5 minutes + 7.5 minutes for Q&A. Lisa and Karen will be hosting along with Larry Chu, MD, MS, of Stanford Medicine X ( Lots of fun will be had. :)

Map and directions can be found at: &

Anyone else who would like to volunteer, please write to us lists4lisa at gmail dot com or ktherzog at gmail dot com. It's a great way to meet people!


Think: "science fair" for adults. If you have a self-tracking project, gadget, app, or idea you'd like to share or demo the workshop hour is perfect for you. You don't need to have a prepared talk, or permission to show something. We will have tables and power strips where you can plug in a laptop if you like, but paper is good too. 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 the organizers know you will be bringing something to Show&Tell so we can be prepared for you.

7 pm – 8:30 pm QS SHOW&TELL TALKS

We reserve the presentation slots for personal self-tracking stories. Please let us know in your RSVP if you're interested in presenting so we can discuss your topic. Talks should answer the three prime questions: 1) What did you do? 2) How did you do it? 3) What did you learn?

We recommend using IGNITE PLUS Following in the footsteps of our inspiration, the SF group.

The Ignite Plus format is 30 15-second slides which makes up a presentation of 7.5 minutes. The presentation will be followed by a second 7.5 minutes of Q&A. There's flexibility on slide advancement timing if desired, but the overall time frame of 7.5+7.5 is not flexible. We will have space for 5 presenters.

Talk 1: Maximus Peto - Experimental Design: Reducing Confounding Factors

Talk 2: Dave Asprey - Oxygen Saturation, Airplanes, and Brains

Talk 3: Lisa Fabiny - My Bulletproof Diet Experiment

Trouble-shooting QS: We are very excited to try something new this month. We will invite four members of the community to share a current challenge related to their self-tracking or experiment design in order to receive moderated feedback from the community and special guests.

8:30 pm – 9:45 pm MORE SOCIAL TIME

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.
