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.
