Please join us on January 16th for an exciting evening of self-tracking presentations, tools demonstrations, and amazing conversation. We're happy to be hosted this time by our friends at the Autodesk. Please RSVP early to grab your spot.

6:00 -7:00 pm SOCIAL TIME & DEMOS

If you have a self-tracking project, gadget, app, or idea you'd like to share or demo, but you don't want to get up and talk about it, the workshop hour is perfect for you.You don't need to have a prepared talk, just let us know if you want to participate.

Just to be clear, we save the talks for personal accounts of self-tracking and self-experimentation, rather than sales/investor pitches. But of course we are also interested in tools! 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.

We'll also have some light snacks and refreshments available during this social time.

7:00 pm – 8:30 pm IGNITE SHOW&TELLS

If you'd like to talk about your personal self-tracking story, please let us know in your RSVP so we can discuss your topic. In your talk, you should answer the three prime questions: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?

We were really inspired by our Story Swap with the Bay Area D3 User Group (http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-d3-User-Group/). If you're working on or have created interesting data visualizations we welcome you to participate. Let us know in the RSVP and participate in our forum discussion (https://forum.quantifiedself.com/thread-personal-data-visualization).

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).

8:30 - 9:30 pm 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.
