The ZeMKI Media Talks give deep insights into current developments in the media industry and promise scientific orientation as well. Each semester, the Centre for Media, Research and Information Research (ZeMKI) of the University of Bremen invites renowned actors of the media sphere to discuss about social issues of media change.

The ZeMKI Media Talks take place in the Café KARTON at Am Deich 86 in Bremen-Neustadt.

With its Media Talks the ZeMKI opens up the discussion on various perspectives of media change with high societal relevance for a broad audience in the heart of the city of Bremen. We invite interested citizens of all ages: from pupils to the elderly, who want to understand and discuss the relevance of the interconnected transformation of media, culture and society

Ten years ago a small group of self-trackers began meeting in the San Francisco Bay Area to discuss what they were learning about themselves from their own data Since then, the Quantified Self has spread around the world. I'll discuss the rise of the Quantified Self movement and the emerging practice of "personal discovery with everyday science.

Gary Wolf is a journalist (e.g. "Wired"), author and co-founder of the Quantified Self movement.
