I always make time to watch a TED Talk videos as i find them fascinating – after all that is their purpose – Ideas worth Spreading. Also video for me is so much more accessible and i can not only listen and learn, i can read the transcripts as well as see the presenter, all obvious stuff i know.
Anyway this video by Seth Priebatsch talks about the game layer and how the last decade was the decade of social and the decade of where the framework in which we connect with other people was built, this next decade will be the decade where the game framework is built, where the motivations that we use to actually influence behavior, and the framework in which that is constructed, is decided upon.
More importantly and related to my previous post about job titles – Seth is also a Chief Ninja :o)
About the video
By now, we’re used to letting Facebook and Twitter capture our social lives on the web — building a “social layer” on top of the real world. At TEDxBoston, Seth Priebatsch looks at the next layer in progress: the “game layer,” a pervasive net of behavior-steering game dynamics that will reshape education and commerce.
