March 20th - H(app)athon -

Good morning


Im on the committee for the H(app)athon project and I would like to invite you to the launch on March 20th at Hub Westminster - REGISTER HERE


More details are below but it would be great to see you there check out the MASHABLEarticles here


We're hacking happiness and need your help!

Come join the H(app)athon Project Committee and invited guests as we launch our Mobile Happiness Indicator Survey (mHIS) and discuss issues around emerging technology and well-being/happiness.

Speakers Include:

  • J.P. Rangaswami, Chief Scientist for Salesforce and H(app)athon Committee Member.
  • Dr. Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness (pending)

The Event:

We've designed the evening to teach attendees about the central areas we're focusing on - Quantified Self, The Internet of Things (emerging mobile/media) and Subjective Well-Being/Happiness. Our speakers will introduce these ideas, and then the evening is about you - we'll break up into groups to play an interactive game to brainstorm ideas around how we could create a new vision of holistic value for the world utilizing emerging technology. As a reminder - our work hinges on the idea of crowdsourcing a Happiness Indicator (like Bhutan's Gross National Happiness) so we can eventually build an App that will act as a real-time, interactive 'well-being indicator for the world.' More details at our site:

The H(app)athon Project Update:

We launched on December 28th and had a nice write up in Mashable, A Hackathon For Happiness. We had over 750,000 impressions on twitter of the word "happathon" and are building up media and other partnerships.

Thank You!

We hope you can join us for this invite-only (yes, we consider you to be influencer-types) event. Help us get h(app)y!
