Welcome, New Readers!

April 28, 2010

Here are some helpful links if you are new to this blog. QS is a collaboration of users and tool makers interested in self-knowledge through self-tracking. For more on this, go to our About page.

Along with posting to this group blog, we hold regular “Show&Tell” meetings where you can hear short, interesting accounts of self-tracking projects, or present your own experiments and results. There are active groups in the Bay Area, New York City, Boston, and Sydney (Australia). The links in this paragraph will take you to the appropriate page on MeetUp.com, so you can sign up for advance notice of meetings.

The links below are a good way to sample the blog and get a sense of the range of things we talk about.

Thank you for exploring the new website for the QS community. You are part of a "work in progress" and all comment is welcome and useful.  We have a list of small things to fix and a list of bigger improvements to make in the months ahead, but even if you think we already know about the issues you notice, go ahead and mention them anyway. You might have seen something new!
