We are highly selective with admitting new members (~20% admit rate), so fully completed profile questions will get priority. What is your full name and LinkedIn profile URL?

My interest in designing experiences for personal habit development is that it empowers people to match their behavior to their intentions. I think this could add value in clinical settings where patient non compliance is an issue as well as in artistic pursuits and even in the arena of professional development. Finally, I think the potentially social component of such an app could be very helpful and rewarding.

What is the nature of your interest in designing experiences for personal habit development?

Can you share a 5-minute personal story about a successful habit practice that's lasted longer than 100 days? If so, please give us just a quick synopsis!

Arguably the unhealthiest thing I've consumed for most of my life, diet coke found itself in my body too often. I relied on it for caffeine. Late 2012, I noticed I had managed to avoid drinking it for a week or two. I decided to see how long I could keep it up. I suppose this is more of a habit of not doing something, but I don't consume it any longer!

Which (if any) relevant guest speaker(s) could you contact to speak at a future meetup with whom you already have a personal relationship?

Need to know more to say for sure.

Which specific host locations (if any) could you contact to host/sponsor a future meetup?

Need to know more to say for sure.

Introduction

Hi! I'm currently exploring neuroscience. Personally, when I find a behavior I practice that I do not care for, I actively try to modify it. This tool might transform this tendency from frustrating and possibly futile to effective.
