I Feel is an idea I had a long time ago and just got round to doing something with. It was inspired by Musicovery, along with my desire (at the time) to try to remember my favourite places in New York.
Musicovery got me very excited when I first saw it about three years ago. Making decisions based on your mood is a powerful idea. It seemed crazy to limit that to just music.
Although it's tempting to focus on how technology can enable new behaviour, I'm more interested in how it can remove barriers to behaving in ways we are programmed to do. Mood - or state of mind - seems to me to be the most fundamental trigger for human action.
So I introduce (in very rough, beta form):
I Feel London
I Feel NYC
Navigate your city by your mood.
Share with others things you like to do depending on how you feel.
It's the beginning of something, although I'm not sure where to go from here just yet. Hope you like it. Do get involved - request an invite, stick on some placemarks. Invite someone else. You get the idea.
A few things:
1. You can only add things from within Google Maps
2. Invitations can come from me or anyone else that is already a contributor
3. Check out the Help videos if you have any problems
This is a real work in progress - love to get any thoughts, input, advise etc - just bear in mind I can't do really clever things like, er, programming ;)
If just a couple of hundred people put one thing on each map it would be a great resource for all of us. Fingers crossed.
P.s. I should do a shout out to my brother who very kindly did the complicated (to me) part between making this in iWeb and it appearing and working properly in its correct URLs. His description of the project is also interesting. Thanks Tim!
