On Tuesday, February 8, 2011, 125 people gathered at Health | Tech | Food to openly innovate around the core health issues of New York through the lens of social technology.
While social technology most frequently addresses the upper half of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we explored how these same technologies can also serve greater societal needs, namely, our health.
Following grounding presentations by Steven Dean, Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, Jerusha Klemperer and Marc Koska, participants broke into small groups to ideate around problem statements in the areas of the quantified self, mobile health, food systems and open source health.
In just under 2 hours, 35 concepts emerged. In the interest of open innovation, Luminary Labs has published all input and output under a creative commons attribution 3.0 unported license.
