Submit your product, app or website for Time Well Spent
Do you think your app, website or product is built for Time Well Spent? We're trying to collect best practices, design patterns, examples and bring the community together in various ways.
App, product or website name?
e.g. CouchSurfing, Calendly, Facebook, F.lux, etc
App, product, or website URL?
Your full name (and role if you wish to share) -- e.g. "Jane Smith, CEO"
Contact Email Address?
(e.g. someone we can contact by email for materials, invitations to conferences, etc)
What is your Mission Question?
Instead of mission statements ("We're making the world more open connected!") which often blind us from seeing the truth, Time Well Spent products are built on Mission Questions ("How might we make the world more open and connected?") that marry humility, doubt and aspiration. What is yours? Try expressing your Mission Question with specificity – what lasting benefits are you trying to land in people's lives? Can you name specific nameable moments in space and time (when/where) that a person using your service will experience this benefit?
What makes your service designed for Time Well Spent?
How do you do things differently than other products? (design decisions, how you state your mission, how you measure success, how you internally organize your team, etc)

How do you measure success?
In the TED talk, Tristan shares how CouchSurfing measured success in the number of "net positive hours" added to people's lives (minimizing time spent on screen, instead of maximizing it). How do you measure or plan to measure your "net positive benefit"? For more background, see
(OK to leave blank if you don't know yet)
