About me

Thanks for coming by. I'm Yoni Binstock, and it's a pleasure to meet you.

3D Printing

--------------------------------------------------------

In my spare time, I like to design models to be printed with 3D printing. So far, I've made custom wedding cake toppers, a donation "globe", iPhone cases, and a spoon holder. 

You can find my models at my etsy store "The 3D Printing Outlet"

Goodnight Chrome

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You’re laying in bed watching YouTube videos of remakes of the Harlem Shake or upvoting news articles on Reddit or scrolling through images on Tumblr and next thing you know it’s 2:00am and you’ve been glued to the screen the entire time.

 

Your significant other is mad at you for ignoring them, your children didn’t get a good night story, and the book that’s been sitting on your bed side counter still hasn’t been opened.

 

What’s happened?

 

Like every other night, you planned to get off your computer after checking the news and your emails, but you end up surfing the internet way past when you wanted to go to sleep.

 

Goodnight Chrome is a productivity extensions for Google Chrome that helps you get away from the internet and the computer at night. Once the set time is reached, Google Chrome will shut down and you will not be able to get back on until the next morning.

 

Spend time away from the computer and be more present with your family, get sucked into a great novel, or just get a good night’s sleep.

Climate Scores

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our goal is to keep Congress accountable on climate change legislation.

Congressmen are scored on climate change legislation including bills and amendments on fossil fuel, renewable energy, climate change mitigation, subsidies and tax policies, and greenhouse gas regulation. We accumulate their voting records and give them a grade from A to F. We also enable ordinary citizens to easily lobby their representatives for immediate action with Facebook, Twitter, emails, and phone calls.

GEN Y Fundraising Consultant

--------------------------------------------------

During my time leading Ashoka's efforts in reaching out to the Gen Y donors, I learned what's needed to connect and build lasting relationships with these donors. 

A recent study by non-profit technology provider, Convio, titled The Next Generation of American Givingcites that the majority of fundraising targets older donors, but this segment of the population is quickly shrinking. Non-profits are going to be forced to attract a new generation of donors. Gen Y (also known as Millennials) are a growing segment of the population, with more than 71 million people, compared to the 41 million Generation Xers before them.

Gamification and Behavior Change

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the past year, I've been consulting firms and individuals on how to use gamification to drive a deeper engagement with their audience. 

Through my time working at DailyFeats  and learning from thought leaders like Gabe Zimmerman, Jane McGonigal, and Jesse Schell, I've built up an extensive amount of experience with gamification. 

Current projects that I'm working using gamification include; increasing open and click through rates in email newsletters, maximizing donations to non profits, and engaging political campaign volunteers.

Play2thefuture

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few years ago, I worked on a project to use games as a mechanism to tackle our biggest global challenges.

 

By playing games about issues like climate change, malnutrition, poaching, and access to clean water, users would receive points to vote in challenges to tackle those very same problems. Around the world, innovators would submit their solution, and the players could vote for which idea they thought was the best. At the end of every challenge, which ever solution that got the most votes, would receive the funding to launch their venture. 

 

 

 

It's time to play games and save the world.
