Recap – Boston QS Show&Tell #3
August 28, 2010
It was August 10th, at MIT’s Media Lab, and about 25 people came out.
— The Speakers —
from the Human Dynamics group:
1. Nadav Aharony — presenting a talk on the “Friends and Family” study, using Android phones to measure the personal and social lives of people in graduate housing communities.
The main thread was connectivity as a tool for prediction of otherwise hard to see social influences (illness, social influences on diet and exercise, as examples…)
and from the general QS community:
3. Daniel Rinehart, with a summary of his use of RescueTime (http://www.rescuetime.com,) a web app that helps keep track of where time is going online, used for analyzing personal productivity.
4. Matt Cornell, presenting his ideas on “The Experiment Driven Life” (http://bit.ly/9htKwi)– an article he wrote, inspired by QS founder Gary Wolf’s New York Times article, The Data-Driven Life. Matt posted his talk on his site: http://www.matthewcornell.org/
