Buy someone some happiness
So I was watching one TED talk the other day and it was a research about what gives people additional happiness. And it is not money, but it is linked to that - basically the happiness levels were elevated when someone gave a present or even a small gift to their friends; but they also measured that the biggest increase in that elusive happiness we want so much was when the recepient of this gift was a stranger!
It made me thinking that if I create an app that actually uses:
- GEO location
- one of the social networks (or several of course)
to choose a person who is either close by (i.e. and you know it is raining heavily) or one of your friends (or a friend of your friend you don't even know).
The main problem is the gift itself. As this app should work at least in the vicinity of one big city - say London - the possibility of buying this gift shuld be quite high.
The possible array of gifts can be:
- cup of coffee at Starbucks (big network, we can issue coupons or credt their starbucks cards directly)
- amazon (not offline but very easy online crediting the account with a £5 gift certificate)
So the problem is the gift and how to move away from the manual agreement with the chain?
Any thoughts please?
