    Mary Cain rocked the house! She had great examples and clearly mapped out some big opportunities related to health habit design. In the Part 2 event next month, Julie Price is going to present her pioneering work related to habit design for endurance training. Highly recommended!

    IDEO presentation was very interesting but unfortunately cut short; in contrast, the final speaker took FAR too much of our time (and too little of that talking about habit design) in spite of body language from Michael Kim and audience, and despite two additional speakers waiting (then rescheduled). I appreciate the nuggets of value and connections at these events, but time limits must be respected for attendance to be worth it. Thanks.
