The conversations informing this exploration.
At various moments throughout this exploration, ideas, hypotheses, designs will assume a form that appears simultaneously:
- 1.Stable and solid enough to build upon
- 2.Definitive and clear enough for other people to react to
This page offers an overview of the conversations I've hosted/led/facilitated/convened around these "moments."
During the winter of 2022, David and I brought the network of ideas the app into a shape people could observe and experience by creating a tappable prototype. To decide whether we would continue investing time and energy into making the app a reality, I hosted a series of conversations as a way to explore/answer the following question:
Do people see themselves using this app within their current, everyday lives alongside everything else they're doing?
Between August 2021 and August 2022, I talked with ~30 people who I knew to be intentional and creative.
I was motivated to develop a sense for whether the need I had noticed was a need other people experienced as well. This way, we (David and I) could gauge the the solution's potential appeal and decide whether the need was a stable/durable enough reference point to orient the design of the app around.
