Quantified Self & Biohacking and Finnish blog

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Quantified self is all about self quantification incorporating technology into data acquisition regarding inputs such as food, states such as mood, and performance such as mental and physical. These often combine wearable sensors, software interfaces and online communities. In a nutshell, it is self knowledge through numbers.

Biohacking is to use systems thinking, science, biology, and self-experimentation to take control of and upgrade your body, your mind, and your life. It is the art and science of becoming superhuman (definition from David Asprey).

You can find a presentation of mine on these topics on Slideshare.

I’ve been organizing the Quantified Self & Biohacking meetups in Finland. We have around 200 enthusiastic and exceptional people from various areas of life participating in this community. If you are interested, head over to http://www.quantifiedself.fi and my new Finnish blog.

I’ve been working on a new startup, Meetin.gs for 9 months now.

Meetin.gs is an internet service that makes it ridiculously easy to organize meetings – it is fast, integrated, and simple to use.

Our main customers are busy business people, who do two things for a living: they go to meetings and they send emails. Meetin.gs enables them to organize meetings effortlessly with people from different organizations and use email in more effective ways.

The service is free to use. The signup process takes less than 60 seconds.

I’m more than happy to announce that Meetin.gs will be presenting at Arctic15, a nordic startup competition held in Helsinki, Finland on the 22nd of September 2011. Meetin.gs has been chosen as one of the 15 finalists out of almost 100 nordic startup applicants. Arctic15 is the leading startup conference for entrepreneurs in Europe.

The one pitching on stage will be me. Let’s see how it goes icon smile Meetin.gs launching on 22nd of September at Arctic15

The central argument of Cloud Company is that social technologies and distributed practices – utilized on the fields of strategy formation and leadership, work and management, as well as external communications and interactions – can make an organization infinitely more agile, intelligent, and responsive. Their usage thus enables an organization to anticipate, lead, and exploit changes in the environment, instead of being thrown at their mercy.

Furthermore, the book sets out a practical framework for redesigning these essential functions of an organization to meet today’s needs.
