“Reality is broken…” Jane McGonigal, TED 2010
As part of my ongoing efforts to encourage you to use your superpowers for good not evil, I offer this little news blip, from the 2010 TED Conference:
“Reality is broken,” says Jane McGonigal, “and game designers must fix it.” At the TED 2010 conference Jane talks about how to work out real world problems in gaming spaces and how gaming can change the world. “We all need to tap into a collective sense of urgent optimism—as well as the ability and capacity to act now—to make the future.”
Wired.com’s Kim Zetter recently spoke to Jane about the role games play in inducing happiness as part of their TED 2010 coverage. You can read the full article here:
Jane McGonigal takes play seriously. She studies the power of games to impact the real-world — and she creates games that do just that. A pioneer in the field of “alternate reality gaming”, her previous projects include The Lost Ring, World Without Oil, Cruel 2 B Kind, and I Love Bees. She is an expert on applying game design and game theory to real work and real business, and has consulted and developed internal game workshops for leading technology companies in Asia, Europe, and the U.S.
