With great power comes great responsibility." - Uncle Ben ( Spiderman)
As tech designers we have great influence on a global scale. This is why we must make sure that the products & services we create are a force for good in the world. As one of my heroes, BJ Fogg, creater of Behavior Design and Captology says, I believe 'We can leverage pursuasive technology to create more harmony among disparate cultures and countries.' Here are a few of my favorite tech iniatives, including my 1st App project - Aop!
Introducing Aop - the Opinion Platform of the Future!
A brand new way to bring people together. Across the United States, we are becoming increasingly divided into our own groups. We don’t have a good way of measuring the honest opinions of our fellow citizens. Aop is a place to bridge the gaps between groups of people who otherwise don’t connect.
By offering anonymity in your vote we give you a chance to share like never before. Our hope is that as we begin to better understand each other, we’ll be able to better connect with one another. In the ways we differ, we can learn. In the many ways we are the same, we can feel connected. In our surprise from what we discover, we can smile. Aop is the voting platform of the Future, we need your help to get there.
A first person narrative-driven adventure game using real stories, you'll explore your relationships to find out the truth and uncover what really matters. We Are Chicago is a strikingly authentic game that strives to portray the harsh realities associated with growing up on the south and west side of Chicago. We hope that We Are Chicago will create a deeper understanding, motivate and inspire change, and cultivate a larger conversation surrounding the issues of violence and income disparity.
