The “Quantified Self” Movement

Larry Smarr, Founding Director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and a defacto evangelist for the Quantified Self movement is the designated moderator in this discussion. The San Diego chapter of the MIT Enterprise Forum is sponsoring this event to ask: What is the Quantified Self movement and why are fitness buffs, techno geeks, and patients with chronic conditions obsessively monitoring their various personal metrics? Is this trend the beginning of a major shift in how we look at our health? What is the distinction between digital health and self-monitoring? Why are global sports clothing companies investing in this technology? More information and online registration is here.
