QS Bay Area Meetup Recap

QSBA_Explo

On March 26th we hosted a fantastic Quantified Self Bay Area meetup at the new Exploratorium space overlooking the San Francisco bay. Over 180 people came together to mingle, learn about new self-tracking tools, and hear from our wonderful speakers.

Our thanks to the companies and organizations who demoed their tools: AddApp, Automatic, ExogenBio, Lumo Body Tech, Metro Mile, Ohmconnect, Reporter, uBiome, and UC Irvine.

We were lucky to have four great presenters talk about their personal self-tracking process. Philip Thomas spoke about building his personal dashboard. Maria Benet talked about how she used self-tracking to lose 50 pounds and take up sport she never dreamed of. Michael Cohn described his use of time tracking and personal commitment contracts. Lastly, Sky Christopherson gave us an update to his wonderful self-tracking talk from a few years ago and how that turned into helping the Women’s US Olympic Track Cycling Team bring home a silver at the London Olympics in 2012. Videos of these talks will be up soon!

Our special thanks go out to Colleen Proppé (who provided the beautiful photo above) and John Schrom who were both live-tweeting the meeting.
