I designed & developed a WiFi mesh network and local mapping hubs/apps (Tidepools
) in Red Hook, Brooklyn, through researching mobile social incentives. The apps & methods built subsequently spread to other cities, events & orgs around the world.
I've presented Tidepools & Red Hook WiFI at The White House,
Harvard and Rutgers Universities.
Featured in New York Times, VICE, New Yorker, Washington Post, Core77.
Awarded Kölner International Design Prize & FEMA Innovation Team Certificate of Appreciation.
I developed a data-game: Vortex
, which allowed people to swap their metadata using a browser extension. With player feedback/results, I created a new method to analyze the size, shape and scale of networks and their behavior. A handbook was funded & published by Kickstarter in Oct.
Vortex was featured in Ad-Age, Contagious, De Correspondent, Naked Capitalism, 89.3KPCC & Slashdot. Speaker at Obfuscation (NYU/Intel), Critical Information (SVA), Creative Technologies (4A’s) & Synthesis (Parsons)
