  • Excellent article. I’m not sure which is worse — the overly simplistic approach to such a complex and powerful issue or the privacy concerns.

    But the trend has begun, like it or not. Someone may need to develop an app to generate “cutesy” names (or maybe one exists already.) Remember Elmer Fudd and his “wascally wabbit”? Well, now we have “Woebot.”

    This one uses Facebook Messenger although they are working on their own messaging platform. Presumably this one will resist the temptation to monetize the information they collect. Right.

  • Excellent article, and great idea! I have long believed that earning our “daily bread” doing things that have nothing to do with who we truly are is a big part of why life is so unsatisfying for so many. I’m reminded of a quote by Wilhelm Reich:

    Love, work and knowledge are the well-springs of our life. They should also govern it.

    I would also love to join the Facebook group you have started. I have some things I am working on along these lines myself, will look forward to sharing some of them.

    Thanks for posting this.
