    1. 1. Existing solutions for: increasing the ability of Stanford students who live in all-freshmen dorms to immediately engage in spontaneous social sport activities by triggering thesame behavior in others.
    2. 2. Tech solutions : buddyup.com, facebook et al. and textingtexting facebook et al.+ powerful trigger - expectations- small group - socially unfamiliar- mildly spontaneous - big community +/- not efficient / but effective?buddyup.com, et al.+ focused+ community- not spontaneous, must plan
    3. 3. Triggers of spontaneous social sport activities Equipment (e.g. sports gear box in dorm lounge)Place (e.g. central park) Time People (e.g. street basketball)
    4. 4. Questions and Insights- often an activity’s spontaneity is inversely proportional to it’s sociableness- the triangle question: how to provide all three vortices while keeping it spontaneous?- current solutions have a hard time motivating users from info to action- encouraging spontaneous social activities requires specific communities (socially and geographically)- Current tech solutions suffer b/c of 1. social stigma and II. user expectation I.) it’s weird posting a twitter or FB update asking who has time to play golf II.) b/c it is not expected I’m much less likely to engage/look for such activities on existing tech- What kind of notification system should be used?
