A presentation about how we can use game mechanics in areas that aren’t a game

Published in: Education

  • Hmm. Think I read a free sci-fi iBook on this called MetaGame by Sam Landstrom. Taking advantage of the socially encouraged, not inborn, need to compete is just the next step after having dried up sex as a motivator in the modern primitive man. Let’s make work more like a viral game or digital social event. It’s still work. Now they’re looking for ways to make it addictive too. I am curious to see where this takes us. Since we’ve been flaming like a comet in this general direction for less than a century I suspect I’ll still be alive when it burns out.
