I started DietPicture and BetterAT.

Out of the things that have worked for me, the things that are the simplest and "scrappiest" tended to work the best -- Like making "calendar streaks". My dream app is something that combines the simplicity/skeumorphism of the streaks on a calendar as an input method with the "deep data/infoviz porn" of apps like fitbit or mint.com. Without me walking around with a ridiculous device that's advertising that I'm a fat nerd.
Anyone from Limeade in Bellevue, WA -- I know David Reeves who runs Seattle's QS meetup group. Also, most people from the Design/UX profession are < 2 degrees away.
I just (sort of) moved to San Fran, so I'm not sure of any places yet. We use WeWork as our space for the incubator that I set up (nReduce), and they're fairly comfortable with having us there.
I'm a designer and serial product builder. I'm interested in behavioral change as I've been reading about it for a while (Jonah Lehrer, BJ Fogg, Dick Thaler). Started BetterAt and DietPicture with habit change in mind.
