Shelagh commented on SingFarm

I loved playing SimFarm as a kid, and I think the aspect your concept points out very well by connecting it to a game is that crops are something that ripen at a specific time. One would want to trade it or sell it while it is still fresh, and the game would be a great way to notify people that your tomatoes are ready to be harvested in 1 day. It would be great to encourage people to also cook with these fresh and local ingredients and maybe the game SingFarm could suggest where one could get all the local ingredients to make a certain dish. Thinking forward one might also consider about how a communal kitchen / garden could be included in new HDB developments.

Shelagh commented on Stereopodding

Hi Johan,

I really value the physical connection one can have with strangers by physically sharing music, although my first thought was that this connecting would happen through an online service. From when I was in Singapore this summer I observed that nearly everyone has a smartphone and a dataplan, so it might seem like the obvious route. But on the otherhand the physical devices do represent the existence of the service, while a cloud service would be invisible. The thing that would hold me back from participating in such a service is that I am often ashamed of the kind of music I listen to and would be reluctant to share, and there must be others that feel the same way. But how might we break down this barrier or creative incentives for using the service? I would love to listen to other people's music though because for me the incentive is that I want to learn about new to me artists and music. It could also be a great way for upcoming artists to promote themselves. Just some of my thoughts.

Yay! Thank you. Hoping more people will contribute their suggestions on how people might connect with each other on the collaborative commute?
