What is Open-Source Software

“The term “open source” refers to something people can modify and share because its design is publicly accessible.

The term originated in the context of software development to designate a specific approach to creating computer programs. Today, however, “open source” designates a broader set of values—what we call “the open source way.” Open source projects, products, or initiatives embrace and celebrate principles of open exchange, collaborative participation, rapid prototyping, transparency, meritocracy, and community-oriented development.”

That brings us to the OPEN SOURCE WAY…

“The open source way is a way of thinking about how people collaborate within a community to achieve common goals and interests. The open source way is similar to a barnraising. Enabling people to further their own interests while contributing those interests back to a common good.”

“The first step to all-natural relaxation is blocking out light. Then, the NuCalm Essential Calming Cream and the cranial electrotherapy stimulation device work together to biochemically help your brain interrupt the adrenaline and cortisol release, by mimicking what naturally occurs in your brain right before you sleep. Last, the “music” – the neuroacoustic software delivers frequencies to your brain which take you down to Theta ( Link) brain wave length. It is only with the combination of these four (4) components, that one can reach deep relaxation, reliably and rapidly.”

Hope Lab

HopeLabs mission:

“A bold idea. In 2001 Pam Omidyar founded HopeLab to create a video game that would help kids with cancer fight their disease. Many people thought the idea was outlandish. But the game, Re-Mission, worked. Players felt stronger, more connected to their treatment process, and more in control of their recovery – like a hero with a purpose. In short, they experienced resilience. Research showed that young cancer patients who play the Re-Mission games stuck to their cancer meds more consistently, improving their health and well-being.

A catalyst for change. Building on the success of Re-Mission, HopeLab has gradually expanded its focus – moving from the development of games for patients with cancer, to the wider application of evidence-based technologies to improve the health and well-being of kids and young adults. The lessons we’ve learned about how to apply human-centered design and technology tools to create resilience among youth puts us in a unique position to assist a wide number of partner organizations seeking to make a difference in kids’ lives.

Design recipe. In designing health solutions, we start by identifying specific behavioral outcomes. Like taking cancer drugs, or getting more physical activity, or being kinder and more compassionate. We gather data to better understand the psychology that motivates or inhibits that behavior. Then, we create solutions that engage those psychological drivers, like a  video game, or an activity meter, or an app. By helping users shift their attitudes and motivation, our technology solutions help empower healthy behavior.”
