(empo-plaaybizz) How games control your mind

Two days after I wrote a post that was partially inspired by one of Paul Pedrazzi's previous posts on play...Pedrazzi wrote another post on the topic. I encourage you to go to the AppsLab website and read the post, which contains a wealth of ideas on play, work, and working playfully.

Let me quote just one brief example:

Games are not trivial technology, but more interestingly, they are not trivial in how the do what they do. The magic is that they get you to return again and again to do things THEY want you to do while thinking it is what YOU want to do.

Pedrazzi then asks:

Does this sound like it may be useful for work?

Food for thought - and if you're having that food at a restaurant, be sure to check in.
