Friend Research & Development is a series of experiments that explore creative and technological solutions for the problems I am facing as a friend: How do I engage with friends who are far away? How do I turn new friends into close friends? How do I remind myself to reach out to certain friends I want to keep in touch with? What are other meaningful ways to interact with friends?
