  • Ubiquitous, networked, interactive (two-way), and we keep them on.
  • We think of ourselves through a lens of the things we own. This is why when we lose things, it hurts. And why when we go through loss there may follow periods of creativity or purchase through which we attempt to “recreate” ourselves.
  • So I guess now I want to return finally to that notion of the network and the spread of healthy behaviours, given the light of this powerful connection we are building both between devices and others, but also to ourselves and the mobile devices that are starting to represent pieces of us more and more. And similar to the way location based data and cell signals transformed the epidemological methods of John Snow’s map, this network map is changing to. You can tell what I’m going to do next right? These signals and these devices and these relationships and networks that are tightening thanks to mobile devices are going to be able to create and sustain healthy behaviours because of the association that we are building with the device. And I think there is a flattending of these networks, the always on nature and the ease with which we can connect to others makes these clustered networks increasingly common. Later tonight and in the readings for class tonight I think you’ll probably talk about apps and about the specific tools that are making these things happen, but I just wanted to bring this perspective to the class because ultimately with social media and with mHelath applications we’re still designing for people, and to improve health and that’s always the thing that is foremost in our minds when we talk about this type of thing. With that, thank you for your time, and I hope you have a great rest of the term. Thanks for having me.
