Happiness

Just heard Jane McGonigal’s talk about happiness. I really, really like her prediction for the future (quick notes, not verbatim):

  • quality of life is the primary metric
  • positive psychology is a principal influence on design
  • the public expects tech companies to have a clear vision for a life worth living
  • to succeed, products/brands/etc. must increase real happiness – the new capital

So refreshing. And the games she’s designed are truly hopeful.
