QS15 conference

Today is the first day of the Quantified Self conference! And Beeminder is a minor sponsor. How excited are we about this? My cofounder and I are each giving a talk, we’re leading a breakout session, and holding Beeminder “office hours”. And we’re presenting Beeminder at the Expo on Saturday.

But wait, there’s more! On Sunday, June 21st at 1pm, we’re having a Bay Area Beeminder meetup. In a park.

Here’s a list of things you’ll be especially interested in if you’re the kind of person who reads the Beeminder blog:

Today (Thursday, June 18)

  1. Bee’s talk on Extreme Productivity, including Maniac Weeks
  2. Mark Leavitt on Heart Rate Variability as a Measure of Health and Willpower
  3. Mark Wilson’s talk on Three Years of Logging My Inbox Count
  4. Beau Gunderson: Am I Being Intentional

Friday (June 19)

  1. Breakout session: Productivity Tracking and Commitment Contracts (i.e., Beeminder)
  2. In parallel with the above: Gamification of Self-Improvement, with Mark Moschel
  3. Me (dreeves) on Frictionless Tracking with Beeminder Autodata
  4. Office hours: Beeminder
  5. Also check out the talk and office hours for Whatify, a new tool for randomized self-experimentation

Saturday (June 20)

This is the expo, where we’re doing a how-to session on Quantified Self plus Commitment Contracts at 12:30. And check out our friends at RescueTime at noon. I’m also excited to see the screening of a new documentary about the US women’s olympic cycling team at 3pm.

Sunday (June 21)

Bay Area Beeminder Meetup! With special guest Nick Winter!

Can’t wait to meet more of you in person!

Final note: It’s too late to get into the conference if you’re not here already, but we have a few free tickets for the expo for devoted readers who make it to the end of our blog posts. The code is “beeminderfree”. When those run out you can use “beeminder10” to drop the Expo price to $15.

And the Beeminder meetup on Sunday is free.
