Amy Robinson on Quantifying Curiosity

By being able to see my ideas and see how they’re connected to each other, I’m able to think about myself in new ways.

Amy Robinson is curious. That curiosity led her to think very deeply about her curiosity. What was she curious about? Where do her ideas come from? What inspires her? In this talk from the 2012 QS Conference Amy takes us through a really unique method for quantifying her curiosity and what she’s learned so far.

Amy has also amazingly provided the transcript of this talk over on her website. Be sure to click over for a wonderful read and links to some of her inspirations for this project.

Stuart Calimport on The Memome Project

Stuart Calimport is on a quest to find the most useful memes for health and well-being. He started the Human Memome Project, and spent a year and a half collecting all his ideas about health. He classified 5137 of these ideas as healthy/ethical/optimal and 6581 of them as unhealth/unethical/sub-optimal. In the video below, Stuart shares some examples of his memes, as well as his process for optimizing meme rate generation, and what he has learned about himself on this adventure. (Filmed by the London QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
