Hacking Happiness: How To Give Big Data A Direction

We live in a world where we think that the more data we create, the more happier we are. During TEDx Indianapolis, John, who is Founder of The H(app)athon Project, a contributing writer for Mashable, The Guardian, and the Huffington Post and author of Hacking Happiness talks about the H(app)athon Project. The H(app)athon Project, an initiative to create digital tools to drive global contentment, aims to find specific ways to use your happiness data. Many of the new big data technologies and directions, such as the Quantified Self, the Internet of Things, reflect aspects of our digital identity. John talks about how we can use that digital identity to switch the focus from productivity and profit to purpose and hack happiness.
