Gamification: From Cars and Curriculum to Commerce « eCommerce Vagabond

Gamification: From Cars and Curriculum to Commerce « eCommerce Vagabond | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
"Game mechanics have been a hot topic for some time now and the interest in properly applying game mechanics to create a loyal and expanding community continues to increase. Gamification, or applying game mechanics and game thinking to engage and grow an audience, isn’t only taking place in the online community. In Sweden, where speed cameras are used to nab speeders and fine them according to their income level, game mechanics were applied to get drivers to lighten the load on the accelerator. The game? Entering drivers who are not exceeding the speed limit into a lottery to share proceeds from the fines of the speeders. The effect? A 20% reduction in average speed."

Google+ hits 20 million users in less than a month

Google+ hits 20 million users in less than a month | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
"Google+ continues to go from strength to strength, with 20 million people visiting the site in less than a month - and all of this despite it currently being an invite only service."

I have been one of the lucky few (millions) who has had the chance to play around with Google+. I must admit, despite it's obvious 'beta style flaws' I was impressed. The hangout function with Youtube was alot of fun. Although it descended into a war of videos with everyone switching the content every 5 seconds.
