Mashup #5 collaborate

  1. 1. Digital Mashup #5: COLLABORATE<br />By Joel Lim<br />
  2. 2. Voluntary Engagement: Deci’s Experiment<br />A group of participants in an experiment were given a puzzle to solve.<br />During an eight-minute break, they were secretly observed.<br />They all spent about four minutes voluntarily engaging with the puzzle.<br />After that, half were promised $ for solving the puzzle.<br />During the break time, the group who were promised $ worked about five minutes on the puzzle – a minute more than previously.<br />In the third stage of the experiment, the participants who were promised a $ reward now had that carrot taken away.<br />During the break, they worked voluntarily for only three minutes – time spent fell by two minutes from the previous break time.<br />
  3. 3. Voluntary Engagement: Deci’s Experiment<br />Deci’s experiment uncovered that “payment for working with the puzzle depressed free choice for the same activity”.<br />Hence, giving something away for doing something right may not always be the better option.<br />“Doing something because it interests you makes it a different kind of activity than doing it because you are reaping an external reward.”<br />
  4. 4. For love. Not money.<br />Make the activity itself the reward.<br />Two intrinsic motivations:<br />Satisfaction from doing something you’re interested in autonomously (you have full control)<br />Joy and pride from becoming competent in something you’re interested in<br />
  5. 5. Voluntarily collaborating…<br />Grobanites for Charity dot org<br />Started by a few fans of Josh Groban. Have raised millions of dollars. All unpaid volunteers. What’s their intrinsic motivation?<br />Linux OS<br />LinusTorvalds asked for collaborators. The whole world joined him. All unpaid volunteers. Why did they give time and brain power to do this?<br />
