Healthcare startup looking for a UI Designer

Today, finding the right health providers for you and your family is a needlessly difficult task. Health providers lack exposure to the patients that need them most, and patients feel lost when trying to find the right person to help them. At Opencare, we are changing that.

Gamification: What it is and when to use it

People are complex, smart, and sometimes extremely stubborn, which may explain why in the last two thousand years, nobody has discovered an easy way to shape how people think and behave. Yet in the digital era, we’re witnessing widespread claims, that the secret to winning friends and influencing people, is to reward them with points and badges.

A magic solution to engagement or a load of hype—in this article, I’m going to discuss gamification, describe it, judge it, address misconceptions, and advocate when it’s a good or bad idea.

IxDA Toronto event: The Programmable World - Tuesday April 22, 2014

We live with machines all around us. The fabric of our cities is made up of connected nodes that track weather, traffic, and commerce. These machines send us messages, tell us what to wear, show us entertainment, and monitor our behaviour. Our physical world is networked and made of code, and we usually don't even notice it. This is the programmable world, a world we now live in where everything is new media.
