Meetups This Week
September 21, 2014
This week will see eight meetups in three countries on three continents and will show the different forms that Quantified Self meetups take. There will be longstanding groups like New York, who are putting on their 26th meetup, while Miami will be hosting their very first. London will be convening over 100 people with formal presentations, while Ashland will have an engaging discussion within a small group.
Show&Tell presentations will include Vienna’s Leonard Tulipan on how he applied his startup’s classification of “vanity metrics” vs. “actionable metrics” to his own medical data. Oxford member John Courouble will talk about the data around his weight loss plateau.
In addition to the standard show&tell format, Sydney will have breakout groups, while the Minnesota group will discuss the tools that their community is using. The Vienna and Portland groups will have guest speakers, including Vestigen, a company that tracks blood biomarkers for disease and Zenobase, which helps people aggregate and visualize their data, respectively.
If you are near any of these special events, you will definitely want to attend. To see when the next meetup in your area is, check the full list of the over 100 QS meetup groups in the right sidebar. Don’t see one near you? Why not start your own!
