Details

Thanks to Hacklab.TO (https://hacklab.to/) for hosting. Hacklab is a technology community space - a place people can go to learn about and work with technology. Tours and details provided.

Quantified Self is "self-knowledge through numbers". Tracking, feedback, goals, little self-improvement projects, come share your experiences using technology for personal growth. Tracking your mood with your smart phone? Recording your workouts, diet and/or weight? Using a fitbit, zeo, or heart-rate monitor? Personalized medicine experience? Whatever it is, come share with others and learn from their experience as well. Or come just to watch - sharing not required if you're just curious to see what this is about!

This month we're going to talk about New Years Resolutions! Lots of people make them, what makes them a success? What's the best kind of resolution? Come and share your stories, or listen to those of others.

Everyone is welcome.

If you are presenting, here's a quick tip: The three Quantified Self Questions are: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn? Remember, sharing is important and valuable even if you share your failures - you never know when someone else will be trying the same thing and you can help them avoid the mistakes that you made! We want to hear your personal stories, and that means really human things like struggling with motivation, experiencing setbacks, and hopefully, every so often, having a flash of insight!

Meeting structure:

7:00-7:30pm: informal networking, show & tell sign-up on whiteboard
7:30-7:45pm: Eric will introduce QS, and then we'll do our quick "three words about yourself" introduction round.
7:45-9:00pm: show and tell, people give brief (10-20 minute) presentations with extensive Q&A from the crowd

We have until 10:00pm to clear the space, so there is time to chat informally after the talks. Hope to see you there. Afterward, we'll be heading over to the nearby Cadillac Lounge 1296 Queen West, join us for post show & tell conversation!
