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.

Why are global sports clothing companies investing in this technology? More information and online registration is here.
