Open Innovation 2.0 Conference 2017

Sociality; location-based services; privacy; ticket to talk; community; ageing; aging; place, third age. While social isolation in an ageing population is a concern in many locations, it is greater in towns where divisive local geography and declining investment conspire against meeting places and mutual awareness. Taking to the streets of a small town to explore if digital tools might improve the situation, we used participatory and provocation methods to inspire engagement with the theme and compare design concepts for sociality. Participants showed great passion for the town and its people, but also caution about publicly revealing even basic information, because of anticipated local consequences. They preferred an indirect approach. Designing technology-mediated connections between patients, relatives and healthcare providers is a main focus of electronic healthcare eHealth. Involving future users in the innovation and design of eHealth is important for understanding the complex socio-technical challenge of connecting key actors in health management. This paper presents the results of a research project on the design of eHealth solutions for hearing healthcare. We introduce a client journey perspective on hearing rehabilitation and present how we engaged elderly hearing aid users, relatives and healthcare providers in inventing future eHealth-assisted client journeys.

As a result, Fred Hammond has become one of the most respected names in the music industry! Throughout his professional career, Hammond has maintained a reputation for excellence and few gospel artists can boast of the consistency of sales, radio airplay and concert appearances that Hammond has achieved over the course of his career independent of the cross-over boost. Since their inception, Hammond has served as producer on more than album projects, racking up numerous awards and nominations including the Grammy, BET, N.

Over the years, he went on to produce several other incredible specialty projects including his Jazz album Grandad Turner, the project dedicated to love, relationships, and marriage—God, Love, and Romance, and the formation of the United Tenors-an incredible, relevant yet nostalgic presentation of the ultimate, modern-day quartet with hit after hit, earning several stellar awards and nominations in The pages continue to turn for the platinum recording artist!

Hammond has taken his creative savvy to a higher level moving into from the stage to the big screen with the movie, The Gospel. Hammond continues to take the entertainment industry by storm! A film division releasing direct to-DVD titles; a music and book publishing division; an online multi-media website including radio programming and streaming video content; theatrical presentations; as well as continued perpetual music production from new and established artists.

Forced for months to rely on family members, friends and sometimes total strangers to get around — the experience was almost too much for the staunchly, self-reliant singer, who found it to be both excruciatingly painful and humiliating at times. A stunningly honest collection of songs balanced equally between stomp-worthy praise reports and deep, in-the-valley ballads, Hammond gathers his best and brightest — including go-to producers and MD Calvin Rodgers and Phillip Feaster- to deliver this powerfully transformative musical sermon.

Hammond never ceases to amaze as he consistently exceeds the bounds of mediocrity!

When thinking about how we wanted to do the feature this year, we decided to switch our focus and spotlight women working behind the scenes in theatre. From publicists to agents to literary managers, it takes a village to make a piece of theatre happen, and there are many talented women in those positions that deserve to have their work in the spotlight.

We also wanted to provide a resource to show that there are many careers in theatre outside of actor, director, and writer. So, once again, we asked women who had been on The Interval to send us names of women working behind the scenes in theatre who they thought were doing exciting things. Here are 16 women you should be watching: You can validate her on all social platforms at chelseanachman. I am a press agent, so I along with my colleague Chelsea Nachman handle the press for Broadway shows and theatre talent.

This includes everything from arranging television performances for Broadway musicals, to working with journalists on major stories, to strategizing messaging and Awards Season campaigns—and sometimes it also includes holding purses on the red carpet or getting coffee during long press days! There are a lot of really rewarding parts about the job: This job also allows me to meet tons of interesting people and work closely with many different personalities, which keeps me on my toes.

Taking flight Civilian drones Most drones today are either cheap toys or expensive weapons. Revealing an unknown monument in the desert near Petra. Performing at the Super Bowl. Sneaking drugs and mobile phones into prisons. Herding elephants in Tanzania. What links this astonishing range of activities? They are all things that have been done by small flying robots, better known as drones. To most people a drone is one of two very different kinds of pilotless aircraft: It is either a small, insect-like device that can sometimes be seen buzzing around in parks or on beaches, or a large military aircraft that deals death from the skies, allowing operators in Nevada to fire missiles at terrorist suspects in Syria.

The first category, recreational drones aimed at consumers, are the more numerous by far; around 2m were sold around the world last year.
