Daniel Pink – motivation

How should business be run? The Candle Problem. We need to re-think motivation, and there is a mismatch between what science knows and how business motivate people.

If you have had a mean or rude boss, like I have, then stress hormones such as cortisol, GH and norepinephrine are released which causes health problems. So why do our bosses cause stress? Being a bully actually means that person is very insecure.

Create interactive activities – games or learning in SL easy!

Last week at SLCC, ImagiLearning introduced the ” ImagiLearning Logic System lets developers communicated with a learner in most every way that SL communicates…chat, whispering, instant messaging…lets you present streamed video and audio…lets you give notecards and objects…let’s you give the user choices that lead to very appropriate responses…and let you track and report the progress of a user in multiple ways. And … it was done completely without scripting?” For more information contact John Jamison (Virtual Bacon) or go to http://slurl.com/secondlife/imagiLEARNING/83/30/21/

The one thing that really struck me at the SLCC conference was the variety of people. In the back of my mind, the people behind the avatars were much younger. That is not true. Many were my age (and VB’s age) and even older. People from every background and from many places around the world. I got to meet a great couple from Australia – Genavrieve Rossini and Oliphaunt Giffen.

The variety of people include Artists, musicians, chess players, fashion designers, castle builders…. furry’s the list is endless. There is a place or two for everyone in Second Life. And if you just want to relax go to Dublin and have a beer at the Blarney Stone or dress up and dance atFrank’s.

View the last few posts (below) for videos of some of the people at the conference.

Key note posts.
