Summary of my health journey to date
I lost my father when I was a boy to a heart condition and it was a real
wake-up call for me when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure
and hyper-tension. I have 3 kids and I hope to be a grand-dad one day. I
lost my father early in life and I am determined to do what I can to stay
healthy for as long as possible. My family needs me to.
i When I do not feel symptoms my condition is not always front of mind.
i How secure is my data? Who can see it?
What makes me aspire to improve my health?
I will do anything for my family, they motivate me to do anything. I
need to be in top condition as a father and husband now and always.

“…connectors and facilitators, as quality producers, as
visualisers and visionaries, as future builders (or co-producers).
Designers as promoters of new business models. Designers as
catalysers of change”
(Manzini, 2009, p. 11).

New types of design knowledge
“to stimulate and steer strategic discussions, to be applied in a
variety of specific projects, to help understand what we are doing or
could do. This knowledge has to be explicit (to be clearly expressed
by whoever produces it), discussable (to permit the exchange of
opinions among many interested interlocutors), transferrable (to be
applicable by other designers) and possible to accumulate (to form a
reservoir of design knowledge that could be the starting point for
producing further knowledge...).”
