This is a story of my 2013 side project to care for our aging parents. It involved several failed attempts to get into accelerators/incubators and ultimately a letter of intent (LOI) from the biggest health insurance provider in the country.
A co-worker proposed this “little quiz” today:
There are 5 Monkeys and a number of apples. They want to divide the apples into equal shares, but all forget. They all go to sleep.

This is a project I was working at my current employer for about a week and a half. I’m not normally able to share my work, but given this project is being taken in a new direction (read: client didn’t like the design), I’m releasing it as an example of the kind of things I do there. It was designed for an iPad 2, but it needed to work in desktop browsers down to IE7.*

I wonder how many people are like me and love to design their own stuff because it would to be awesome to have that sort of creative freedom in both digital and physical contructs. So far, I know Converse, Adidas, Timbuk2, and Mission Bicycle provide webapps for customizing products for end users. Continue reading
