Please join us for yet another interesting, fun night of self-tracking presentations, sharing ideas, and showing tools. This time we are excited to be at design firm Adaptive Path (http://adaptivepath.com) in San Francisco.
Our theme for this meetup will be self-tracking related to health and medicine. If you are tracking your health in any way, please come and share your methods and results during the opening workshop, or volunteer to give a talk.
6 -7:30 pm SOCIAL HOUR AND WORKSHOP
Blood pressure, genetics, medical test results, blood sugar readings, hormone levels, dietary experiments - 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 for you. You don't need to have a prepared talk, or permission to show something. Just come and bring what you have. We will have tables and power strips where you can plug in a laptop if you like, but paper is good too.
Think: "science fair." With healthy snacks and wine to get the conversation flowing.
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.
7:30 pm – 9 pm QS SHOW&TELL TALKS
For this meetup, we're excited to have a theme of health and medicine. If you'd like to talk about your project, please let us know in advance so we can discuss your topic and how much time you'll need.
QS SPONSORS: OUR THANKS TO ADAPTIVE PATH, BASIS, HEALTHTAP AND CURETOGETHER

QS SPONSORSHIP - WHAT IT IS
We use the sponsor money to pay for professional video recording and healthy refreshments, as well as to fund projects that help the larger QS community. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring Quantified Self, please let us know.
This time, we are also experimenting with an optional $5 donation to help cover the out-of-pocket costs of running the meetups, with any extra going towards larger QS projects. If you'd like to donate more than $5, please do!
Thank you and see you there!
