Quantified Self Meetup

Last week, I gave a quick MemoryMiner demo at a meetup of the Quantified Self. This is a group of super-smart technologists, designers, writers, and the like, who recently formed and meet once a month. This time it was at IDEO’s San Francisco office, which is a really cool space in one of the old San Francisco piers.

I was pretty damn nervous about trying to present MemoryMiner in 5 minutes, but somehow managed. It was very well received: I had a number of people seek me out, and even some offers of help and support (including design help for some of the tricky time/place correlations I’ve been struggling with). The whole thing was recorded, but I haven’t seen the video yet, so I thought I’d post a video of my presentation at the Los Angeles Idea Project from this past June:

    neat video.. i’m wondering if Quantified Self is anything like TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design)? I’ve seen some pretty neat videos come out of the TED meetings…

    Hi Harry:

    Thanks for the kind words. The Quantified Self meet up had a feel similar to Foo Camp in that everything was short and sweet and everyone had a chance to present. The LA IP conference was like a mini TED conference, in fact, it used to be called TED LA, since it was kind of a “reunion” in LA for people who attend TED.

    In any event, I’m looking forward to the next meet up.
