Jane McGonigal is the doyenne of gamification (adding game elements to things that aren’t traditionally games).

Today a friend suggested I check out her video below. It’s been great for putting a bit more perspective into my point of view.

As she mentions in the video, McGonigal’s also used what she’s learned to make an online game for people to use for their own self-improvement: SuperBetter. Let me know if you try it out – it would be great to see you on there.
