Thinking Architecture

Dr. Tracy Ann Essoglou wants you to stop trying to be a “thought leader” and get ready to practice “thinking architecture” instead.

Dr. Essoglou is a culturescaper, thinking architect, and founder of Situation Design. We connected online through my previous post about #WeWashing in the so-called “sharing economy” and decided to meet up over coffee, where we discussed topics ranging from art and activism, to philosophy, wisdom and design.

One key takeaway from the conversation that really resonated with me was her use of the term “thinking architect” rather than the well-worn buzzword “thought leader.”

Happy Mango at StartOut Demo Day

The Foossa team and I are looking forward to presenting Happy Mango Credit at the StartOut Demo Day at Civic Hall on February 24.

DemoDay-One-Sheet

Happy Mango is a free service that allows you to visualize your financial health, get a new kind of real-time credit rating, and apply for loans directly from community banks and credit unions. Foossa designed the Happy Mango branding and user interface in collaboration with The Tiger Party.

Sign up for Happy Mango and let us know what you think at hello@foossa.com.

Already have good credit? Not in the market for a new loan? No worries. You can still take advantage of Happy Mango’s free financial visualization tools.

The more people who sign up for Happy Mango, the more power we have together to change the whole credit rating and consumer credit industry, making it more transparent, more responsive, and more human.

We are building a movement to humanize credit. Join us.

p.s. We are also looking for investors to partner with to help us take Happy Mango to the next level. If you are interested or can help us make an introduction, that would be much appreciated: hello@foossa.com.

 

#FoossaFinds – 22 October 2014

The Thinking Body

Did you know that Einstein’s insights for the theory of relativity came to him in the form of kinesthetic sensations in his muscles?

In a Wisdom Hackers ebook published this week, Foossa’s Lee-Sean Huang explores issues of embodied cognition and “the thinking body.” You can read a free excerpt of the ebook on Medium, and subscribe to the full series on The Pigeonhole. We also welcome you to join us in discussing these ideas on DebateHub.
