“Quantified Self is a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking. We exchange information about our personal projects, the tools we use, tips we’ve gleaned, lessons we’ve learned. We blog, meet face to face, and collaborate online.”

We think the Quantified Self movement is a well-deserving topic for our attention. It may sound like a statistics lecture, but the weird and wonderful ways we can track our lives is worthy of discussion and debate!

May we proudly present July’s line-up of speakers:

Ariel Garten - "Brain Guru", CEO InteraXon Inc.

Alan Majer - Founder of goodrobot.com and Mad Scientist

Sacha Chua – Experimenter-at-large!

Nicholas Manolakos - Performance Management Architect

  • Girl Geeks supporting women, not excluding men\nCassie McDaniel started a website called Womenandtech.com to start curating a list of interesting women in tech, because all female networking groups struggle to source female tech speakers.\n\n1) We bring babies to conferences and no-one bats an eyelash\n\n2) We don't have to plan pregnancies around career objectives\n\n3) We don't have to have babies at all if we don’t want them\n\n4) We speak and people listen, even though we may be shorter or less direct with communication\n\n5) Listening and collaboration are not only considered feminine virtues, but are overall workplace values\n\n6) We can have personal relationships with our bosses, colleagues & reports without feeling slightly weird about it. Also goes for networking!\n\n7) We don't have to second guess whether our salary is lower because we are women\n\n8) We get as much respect and recognition as men in the field doing the same things\n\n9) Speakers at conferences and people who write articles don't make assumptions about their audiences, and label us guys or bros or anything that is exclusive\n\n10) Be the people who dare to do things differently. We don't have to accept other people's versions of what it means to be successful.\n
