Self knowledge through numbers.
Quantified Self Labs
Building User Community
Steven Dean is the founder of the New York Quantified Self group founded in 2009 with over 2,500 members in 2016. The NY meetup is modeled on the Bay Area Quantified Self group started in 2008 by Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly. This is a regular show and tell for people who take advantage of various personal informatics to gain more knowledge about themselves, others and the world around them.
The mission of Quantified Self is to support new discoveries about ourselves and our communities that are grounded in accurate observation and enlivened by a spirit of friendship.
As of 2016, we've had over 125 Show&Tell talks. These talks are available on Vimeo and our standard format for the talks follow a basic set of heuristics:
- What did you do?
- How did you do it?
- What did you learn?
