Meetups This Week
March 15, 2015
There will be five Quantified Self meetups this week. If you live in the south of England, you won’t want to miss the meetup in London. They are always excellent.
St. Louis will feature a discussion with Dr. James McCarter on fasting. McCarter will explain the science of ketosis and how to take a citizen-science approach to measuring the biological effects of fasting.
Washington, DC will have a jam-packed schedule, starting with Patrick McKnight showing his exercise and hypoxic training data from his preparation to ascend Mt. Everest. Josh Touyz and Dmitri Adler of Data Society will show the group how to get their data from the Fitbit API and analyze it. There will also be a talk from an analytical chemist on how to use blood tests to address nutritional deficiencies.
In addition to the show&tell talks in Thessaloníki, the group will have a discussion about the possibilities of Apple’s new ResearchKit, inspired by #WhatIfResearchKit on Twitter. Background on this hashtag can be found here.
