Daydar: Framework for Socially Motivated Goal Fulfillment

We all use systems for organizing our cluttered schedules, from the day planner, to to-do lists, to methods such as Getting Things Done. Daydar is a framework that makes this process social: Can you learn from the working styles of others? Can you collaboratively create an environment of healthy competition by being aware of your friends' daily accomplishments? Can this help you to find a better balance between work and play? Within this framework, we are experimenting with physical and digital artifacts that enable you to reflect on your own goals through your peers' work habits, get motivated, and externalize your tasks in order to improve the process of accomplishing projects.
