The 2013 Quantified Self Europe Conference Roundup

QSEU_Header

This past weekend we hosted the 2013 Quantified Self Europe Conference. Over 275 self-trackers, toolmakers, scientists, and enthusiasts came together to collaboratively learn about creating “self knowledge through numbers.” It was an amazing conference that featured over 100 different presentations that included insightful show&tell talks, thoughtful breakout discussions, rapid-fire Ignite talks, and inspirational plenary presentations.

We’re currently processing all the videos from the conference and will be posting those soon. Until then we thought it would be nice to highlight all the great posts, videos, and pictures that our community has been putting together to document their QS Europe Conference experience.
