Quantified Self Monthly CoLaboratory
Pacific Northwest College of Art (on Kearney)

Join us for the "free swim" of PDX Quantified Self meetings!

Work and talk in a space with other QSers. If you've got a pile of data you've been meaning to get to but just haven't devoted a block of time to it, bring it to the Co-Lab. Other data-interested people will be there for you to share with, get inspired by, and to get help from.

Wank to talk about QS-related ideas? Drop by for a chat, and maybe start or join a QS-related project.

Thinking of presenting something at our bi-monthly Show and Tell? Hone your presentation during this time, bounce ideas off of people, and get early feedback and encouragement.

We do a round of intros at the beginning to find out what people are interested in doing/talking about, and then people are free to break up, gather together, work, talk, and see what other people are working on.

See you there!

Quantified Self Show & Tell: Analyzing Your Data
Mozilla

July's theme is: ANALYZING YOUR DATA

As QSers, we generate data like crazy, but many of us don't know what to do with it from there.

At this meetup, we're going to talk about what to do once you have data. If you have some data that you have worked through, I encourage you to come share the process with us so that we can all learn!

We'll also have a person or two from the Portland Data Science Group there to give us some analysis tips from the experts.

Here's our agenda:
Informal Social and Gadget Time - Starting at 6pm
Come early to socialize with other QSers and share what hardware, apps, and other technologies are helping you track your life. Bring your gadgets so that we can all see them, play with them, and hear your experiences with them!

Intro and Announcements - 6:30 sharp!

Show and Tell
Just like when you were in kindergarten, we encourage you to share something within the theme of the meetup. It doesn't a formal presentation, and can be as much as 10 minutes or as short as you like. Let us know in advance to guarantee your slot.

Quantified Self Conference
through Ziba Design - Auditorium

What can you learn about yourself using your own data?

The Quantified Self conference is where DIY toolmakers, scientists, caregivers and patients, athletes, teachers, and everybody else interested in "self-knowledge through numbers" get together to share their projects and exchange what they'relearning about self-tracking tools and methods. This year we'll have a special focus on learning from our own data both inside and outside of the classroom. Tools that will be discussed include blood assays, home-built environmental monitors, and effective tools for emotional self-assessment. Want to build your own metabolism tracking device? Curious about the effect of circadian rhythms on cholesterol? Interested in genomics, microbiome, fitness, and diet? As always, we'll have two days of first person "show&tell" reports about self-tracking and learning in all these domains - and more.

The program is what we call a carefully curated unconference. We look at the projects and ideas proposed by everybody who registers, learn as much as we can, and then craft a series of talks and discussions reflecting the latest knowledge in the QS community. You can get a good look at the style of the meeting by watching some of the talks we've been posting from past conferences at http://quantifiedself.com/.

Join us! (And please don't forget to post something about your work in answer to the survey questions when you register.)
