GSummit Interview

Last night, the Apps Lab did a shout out to this blog, and showing that I am easily response driven, I started thinking that I really needed to get a new blog piece together.  The last few weeks have been pretty swamped with some not terribly exciting back end gamification issues about getting some products into development as well as a lot of non-gamification work.  But then today the GSummit folks helped me along by posting an interview that I did at the GSummit last year. 

In the coming weeks and months, my team will be working on the creation of some gamification guidelines and patterns, and I hope to share what we are working on then.  In the meantime, here's a link to last year's interview!  I'll be speaking there again this year--let me know if you'll be there.  I'd love to meet you in person.  Plus, it's on my birthday so I'll have a badge for anyone who remembers...

Blood donation, green badge

In my last blog post, I talked about the gamification of blood donation.  Just thought I'd follow up since today I earned the green badge, er, bandage today.  Funny thing, it made me late for a gamification conference call.  Bonfils doesn't offer points or a virtual economy (although a friend of mine recently got a pretty nice messenger bag) but I did get some bottled water, trail mix and cheez-its, so there is that.

Blood donation

I'm still not sure that the addition of a virtual economy would get me to donate more often (not having to reschedule every time a new meeting was added to my calendar might work better than that). But then again, the concept of gamification of blood donation got me to sign up, update my profile on the donor site and actually go.  And they matched my bandage to my bangles.
