Tech stakeholders and analysts generally believe the use of game mechanics, feedback loops, and rewards will become more embedded in daily life by 2020, but they are split about how widely the trend will extend. Some say the move to implement more game elements in networked communications will be mostly positive, aiding education, health, business, and training. Some warn it can take the form of invisible, insidious behavioral manipulation.

    Well I recently thought about the two sides of gamification. Maybe you can tell me what you think about it? You can find it under http://gammagamification.wordpress.com/
    I’d really appreciate your feedback as I think we need to define some ethics for gamification to avoid such behavioral manipulation.
    May the force be with you,
    Chris
