What Motivates Gamers? Status, Access, Power and Stuff
The Gamification Summit - The Concourse Exhibition Center
Crowdsourcing -- that is, enlisting open crowd support for funding or research -- is not a new method by any measure but what is often unrealized about this method is it’s genesis…gamification.

From NASA to tennis shoes, the engagement is a game. I’ll present some of the history as well as some of the more contemporary ways in which the crowd is enlisted to participate in some of today’s leading research and development."
