Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, March 2, 2013 11:03 AM

Cool article that is pretty far afield from my core expertise, but my inclination after reading it is to say YES. I'm waiting for the game company I can white label and use inside MY (or our) content.

Problem with that idea is white labeling the same game over and over has no value, so the game itself would need to be created in blocks that were customizable so each iteration of the game felt different and unique.

always a lot of talk around tesla and the potential energy sources of the future. I love to see this with a positive spin rather than the usual whining over what may or may not have been on the agenda 100 or more years ago.

I bet the "emotional price" of creating video games is high. When I couldn't figure out how to create a Mondrian grid in HTML in 1999 it drove me crazy. I barely spoke for a month and that was TINY compared to what it must be like to work on the creation of a sustainable world with levels of play and complex front and backend architecture.

You can see those grid lines that drove me crazy here:

Curation Find of the Day
Wednesday is only moments old. But I've paid for lunch already. This excellent Business 2 Community post discusses how social and video games are sliding toward one another. 

I don't think they are the only things on the slide. I think Social, Mobile, Local, marketing gamification and video games are all become one and the same idea controlled by the game consoles we carry in our pockets (Smart Phones).

Gamification Increases Engagement 29%

Post Panda & Penguin Engagement Is Queen
If CONTENT is truly and finally KING post Google's Panda and Penguin updates then engagement, those things that visitors coming back to your website and viewing it for longer periods of time are queen.

In the land of engagement GAMIFICATION is a prince because here are just a few things gamification does:

* Increase time on site.
* Increase social shares.
* Increase commenting and User Generated Content (UGC).

I could go on but why. If those three don't convince you nothing will. The stat that I love from this post is the almost 30% engagement lift. Don't think of this magic as "engagement" think of it as MONEY. 30% engagement lift could translate into MILLIONS for many websites as great customers come back more often, share move often and BUY MORE OFTEN.
