Come join the H(app)athon Project Committee and friends as we launch our Mobile Happiness Indicator Survey (mHIS) and discuss issues around emerging technology and well-being/happiness. Together, we will play together to envision the key aspects of the Happiness Economy.

This event is being organized by Chris Heuer from the H(app)athon Advisory Committee in conjunction with NextSpace in San Francisco.

Speakers Include:

The Event:

We've designed the evening to teach attendees about the central areas The H(app)athon Project is focusing on - Quantified Self, The Internet of Things (emerging mobile/media) and Subjective Well-Being/Happiness. Our speakers will introduce these ideas, and then the evening is about you.

For the second half of the evening, we'll break up into groups to play an interactive game to brainstorm ideas around how we could create a new vision of holistic value for the world utilizing emerging technology. For a full description of how the event works, please refer to our H(app)athon Project Workshop Toolkit and consider running your own event!

Our work hinges on the idea of crowdsourcing a Happiness Indicator (like Bhutan's Gross National Happiness) so we can eventually build an App that will act as a real-time, interactive 'well-being indicator for the world.' More details at our site: www.happathon.com.

The H(app)athon Project Update:

We launched on December 28th and had a nice write up in Mashable, A Hackathon For Happiness. We had over 750,000 impressions on twitter of the word "happathon" and are building up media and other partnerships.
