Thanks to the advice of Jonathan Richman, I just moved over Liking and Tweeting of blog posts I used to have in here to ShareThis: a consolidated way to sharing on your site PLUS it gives you control over what and how things get shared if you want it/need it.
Anyone else got any success stories, using ShareThis?
This is the slidedeck for a presentation about HealthSeeker, the healthy Facebook Game we developed at the Diabetes Hands Foundation, in collaboration with Joslin Diabetes Center.
I am presenting HealthSeeker along with Michael Fergusson, from Ayogo Games, at e-Patient Connections 2010 Sept. 28, 2010:
There is a widely-held belief that playing games online is a waste of time at best (“Your friend sent you a sheep!”), and part of an unhealthy sedentary lifestyle at worst. A closer look reveals something quite different, however: games and play are one of the strongest motivators of behaviour, and a key tool for anyone looking to develop or reinforce healthy habits. HealthSeeker is a game that turns your Facebook network of friends onto a source of support as you complete real-world missions to get healthier through simple everyday actions. Join us for a discussion about the game, how it works and how it came about.
