Jane McGonigal picks carrots

on July 25, 2011

Jane McGonigal is has created a new online game “Superbetter“.
“SuperBetter is a game that helps you recover from any illness or injury — or achieve any health goal — by increasing your personal resilience. Resilience means staying curious, optimistic and motivated even in the face of the toughest challenges.

SuperBetter creates a private, online space where your closest friends and family become allies in your adventure toward health and wellness.’

A previous game “A World Without Oil” “…invites people from all walks of life to contribute “collective imagination” to confront a real-world issue: the risk our unbridled thirst for oil poses to our economy, climate and quality of life..”

Jane did a great video on TED. “Gaming can make a better world” and has written a great book on gaming “Reality is Broken“.

Jame is a gamer in a world of games created and played by mainly men. Are not only games, but social media companies “sexist”?
