May, 2012: 3 posts.
I’ve been very interested in gamification since I saw Jesse Schell’s “Visions of the Gamepocalypse” back in 2010 (See Jesse Schell: Beyond Facebook, and later when I got a lot of interest from Asian foursquare users in a bid to acquire “Mile High” badges (See: Mile High).
So here we are more than a year later, and gamification is as close as my local Wells Fargo ATM, it says “You’ve earned a new badge: Express Depositor”:
I didn’t click the “Learn More” button, but I’m fascinated by the way these things work. I enjoy playing with and getting location information from Foursquare, and I really like participating in StackOverflow (and related sites). I’m not sure what these badges will mean to me at my bank.
So over several months I was consulted for an article about Flash. There were some issues and errors in it initially, but now that it’s all there, I’m delighted to show you the link: Time to de-Flash your site?
Now, Betteridge’s Law of Headlines states that “Any headline which ends in a question mark can be answered by the word ‘no'”. Still, I think the article manages to convey the complexities of the decision website owners need to make about replacing Flash. It’s still a very mixed bag out there.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had any media mentions, but this was harmless enough. Thanks David Weldon for seeking me out and for the thorough picking of my brain!
