Quantified Self Show & Tell
Puppet

Tracking your mood with your smartphone? Recording your workouts, diet and/or weight? Using a Fitbit, Withings scale, or heart-rate monitor?
Quantified Self is "self-knowledge through numbers" and we want to hear your self-tracking stories! Sign up to give a talk. Our content comes from our community. Show us your graphs, spreadsheets, biometric devices, practical solutions and crazy notions. They are all welcome. We focus on real self-tracking projects involving your personal data.

Or just bring your enthusiasm and come to marvel and learn with us. Sharing is not required if you're just curious to see what this is about!

Agenda:

• 6 to 6:30 pm: Doors open. Social time. This is an opportunity to meet other self-trackers and catch up with friends.

• 6:30 to 7 pm: Group Mind. Do you have a tool that you’re working on, or a self-tracking idea that you want feedback on? The format for Group Mind is 2.5 minutes to talk about your question, project, issue, proposal or challenge and 2.5 minutes to solicit ideas and brainstorming from our members. It is a great way to kick-start or problem-solve your QS issue. You’ll be able to sign up to participate on the day of the event.

• 7 to 8 pm: Scheduled Show & Tell talks. These are 7 minute talks with 5 minutes for questions. This is the meat & potatoes of QS meetups. This is an opportunity to share your story with your peers. Please contact us in advance if you want to give one.

• 8 to 8:30 pm: Walk-on Show & Tell talks. These are 5 minutes with time for a couple questions. They are signed up for on the day of the event, using a sheet at the welcome table. We’ll go through as many as we can, time permitting.

• 8:30 pm onward: The discussion continues over drinks at a pub to-be-named later! This is a good opportunity to talk with presenters or follow-up on an issue that came up in the Group Mind. If you can join us, I very much encourage you to do so. Not only is it good fun, but the conversations are invigorating.

If you're interested in doing a Show & Tell, please mention it in your RSVP or email the organizers in advance. If we hear from you before the meetup, you’ll have a little more time and be guaranteed to talk. You can also sign up on the day of the event as a walk-on.

A note if you plan on presenting: don’t think that this needs to be a TED Talk. We call it Show & Tell for a reason. This is just like first grade. All you have to do is come up, show us something and tell us about it. You can use slides if you want, but it is not required.

One thing that will help with your talk is to structure it around these three questions: 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! Keep it informal. Keep it honest. You're in a safe place.

It helps to watch videos of previous QS talks. This link explains why these three questions make for a good talk.

Finally, thanks to our friends at PuppetLabs for providing the space. And feel free to tweet at the event - #QuantifiedSelf #QSPDX

We can't wait to see you there!

Quantified Self Show & Tell
Puppet

February's theme will be: HABITS

Much of what interests people in QS is habit-related (changing bad habits, establishing and maintaining new habits), so it's not surprising that this topic comes up quite a bit in free-form discussions, so we decided to dedicate a meetup to it.

If you have an experience with habits and QS (if you're a Lift user, for example), come and share it!

Here's our agenda: Informal Social and Gadget Time - Starting at 6pm Come early to socialize with other QSers and share what hardware, apps, and other technologies are helping you track your life. Bring your gadgets so that we can all see them, play with them, and hear your experiences with them!

Intro and Announcements - 6:30 sharp!

Show and Tell Just like when you were in kindergarten, we encourage you to share something within the theme of the meetup. It doesn't a formal presentation, and can be as much as 10 minutes or as short as you like. Let us know in advance to guarantee your slot. Time permitting, we may watch pre-recorded presentations from other QS groups.

Discussions We'll break out into groups. You can propose a topic yourself, join someone else's, or talk to the people that shared something during Show and Tell.

Quantified Self Show & Tell: Analyzing Your Data
Mozilla

July's theme is: ANALYZING YOUR DATA

As QSers, we generate data like crazy, but many of us don't know what to do with it from there.

At this meetup, we're going to talk about what to do once you have data. If you have some data that you have worked through, I encourage you to come share the process with us so that we can all learn!

We'll also have a person or two from the Portland Data Science Group there to give us some analysis tips from the experts.

Here's our agenda:

Quantified Self Conference
through Ziba Design - Auditorium

What can you learn about yourself using your own data?

The Quantified Self conference is where DIY toolmakers, scientists, caregivers and patients, athletes, teachers, and everybody else interested in "self-knowledge through numbers" get together to share their projects and exchange what they'relearning about self-tracking tools and methods. This year we'll have a special focus on learning from our own data both inside and outside of the classroom. Tools that will be discussed include blood assays, home-built environmental monitors, and effective tools for emotional self-assessment. Want to build your own metabolism tracking device? Curious about the effect of circadian rhythms on cholesterol? Interested in genomics, microbiome, fitness, and diet? As always, we'll have two days of first person "show&tell" reports about self-tracking and learning in all these domains - and more.

The program is what we call a carefully curated unconference. We look at the projects and ideas proposed by everybody who registers, learn as much as we can, and then craft a series of talks and discussions reflecting the latest knowledge in the QS community. You can get a good look at the style of the meeting by watching some of the talks we've been posting from past conferences at http://quantifiedself.com/.

Join us! (And please don't forget to post something about your work in answer to the survey questions when you register.)
