i’ve been reading/observing various threads for awhile now - and am finally getting around to introducing myself and committing myself to being more proactive member of this exciting community.
i’m a product designer/UI designer/creative director who’s been around the high tech industry for A LONG time ;0 I have had a few funded companies, but none that amounted to much in the end. Money has never been my motivating force - change is, and the QS movement optimizes so much that interests me. I feel like we’re on the brink of a humanistic renaissance, thanks to QS and technology.
i’ve been playing around making prototypes that involve a ‘lean back’ QS approach to mood observation/manipulation through short format video clips…and playing with concepts of how we can create triggers that prompt immediate action with enthusiastic opt-in behavior. A big challenge that i’m determined to explore. my personal site is at http://www.arielmcnichol.com
i’m currently reading Hooked http://www.amazon.com/Hooked-How-Build-Habit-Forming-Products-ebook/dp/B00HJ4A43S after a week long bath in Dr BJ Higgs and tiny habits.
i’m from California, with long stints both in the SV/SF and LA. Right now i’m in argentina until late August with my 2 kids and professor husband who’s on sabbatical from UCLA.
