HEALTH: Living by Numbers

Ok, so not really a festival, but a celebration of something very specific: living by numbers means tracking as many measurables as possible. Tim Ferriss and J. Craig Venter are two speakers. The fact is that when you track things about yourself, you can improve a lot of things about yourself that seemed hard or impossible to do. Numbers are being pushed in a lot of frontiers, from fitness to genomics and beyond.

You can't go to this conference, but you can watch it online. Log on and check out some cutting edge conversations.

When: October 15-16, 2012
