“Each of us has a unique ability. I want to use mine?the knowledge to make products which are disruptively easier and more enjoyable to use?to change people?s lives. Life-changing not in the sense of a new social website or better email, but in making people?s lives materially better by helping them get and stay healthy. Anyone that?s been sick, overweight, or had to deal with a doctor knows that health is a field in dire need of humane design,” wrote Raskin on his blog.
