Access Notes

We're on the 11th floor, come on up. Non-members park bikes outside the building. Paid car parking is connected to the building, and a SmartPark is two blocks away near Target. Located on SW 10th and Washington, between Target and Powell's, on the big block of food carts. We're on the Streetcar line, a block from the Red and Blue MAX lines, and a 5-minute walk from the Green, Yellow, Orange lines.

[This was our temporary location at 1410 SW Morrison, from March to September 2017; we moved to the current location of 511 SW 10th Ave.] The elevator to the upper floors is broken, so take the elevator to the 4th floor and take the stairs from there.



Please join us for a night of conversation on self-tracking and monitoring where you share ideas, tools and experiments with the Portland Quantified Self community.

If you are self tracking in any way – life logging, biometrics, athletic performance, mood, sleep, medical symptoms, happiness, energy, etc. – come and share your methods, results and insight.

Here's our agenda:

Intro and Announcements - 6:10 sharp!
We'll have a round of introductions, and then Steven will give a quick primer on QS as a movement and recap some of the most interesting self-tracking projects he's seen in the past couple of months.

Presentations* - 6:20 to 7:30 (Confirmed talks with more to come) -Steven - Using smell to improve flashcard performance -Mark - Update on my metric-collecting exercise chair

If you have a project you can talk about, let us know when you sign up!

Post-talks Social Time - 7:30 to 8 pm
After some amazing presentations, we will have some time to converse with those around us.

*Where our talks come from: Our talks come from you! Do you have a personal self-tracking story to share? Please let us know in your RSVP. You can let the three prime questions guide your presentation:What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?

Here are some examples from previous Quantified Self events:

Parking: Lots of 5-hour metered street parking and nearby parking lots (for weekdays check out 1602 SW Taylor and 1201 SW Yamhill), and free 2-hour parking north of Burnside.
