Game Mechanics

with one comment

Just read a great post from a colleague of mine and the lead developer behind Plurk – a super cool microblogging platform that is currently the biggest social network in asia (minus china where it has been great firewalled … alas that is a story for another day).

Back to the post … it featured the following video by game designer Amy Jo Kim speaking to a group from Google.

The video made me think of a couple things. (1) How can I add game mechanics to my work or future work. (2) Getting speakers like this is another reason Google just keeps on raising the bar with new and innovative technologies … Kudos to their HR dept.

Finally, I really want to find a version of Jane McGonigal’s TED talk. Please let me know if anyone knows where to find it.
