    Speaker Announcement: Chris Dancy!

    chris-dancy-cyborgcamp-mit-speaker

    I’m proud to announce that Chris Dancy, CyborgCamp 2012 emeritus, will be presenting at CyborgCamp MIT! Dancy came out of his “data closet” in Portland by showing a small unconference audience what he was doing with his own data. Wired writer Klintron Finley was in the room, and the rest is history.

    Chris utilizes 300-700 sensors, devices, applications, and services to track, analyze, and optimize as many areas of his existence as he can think of. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.

    Chris’s name and avatar are synonymous with the future of work, edutainment, technically-enabled external evolution, and his quantified life (existence). He travels extensively and speaks on these topics and more, and has been featured in Fox News, NPR, BBC, TechCrunch, Businessweek, Wired, Bloomberg TV, and The Guardian as the “Most connected human on Earth.”

    You can follow Chris Dancy on Twitter @servicesphere.
