    Default Gamification

    A word we see increasingly often. Expect it to be linked with social credit systems. Expect it to be tied with performance targets at your workplace. Expect it to be increasingly unavoidable.

    Have you read about the lives of the foid delivery cyclists? Their systems are very closely modelled on gaming systems. This bleed over of game space and social space hit the mainstream with pokemon.

    luke's true conversion to drill occurred one mdma fuelled night when he went through a playlist i made and was sending me periodic emails about how wicked it all was. he kept talking about it in terms of this diabolic game they were all playing. that's reflected in the song titles.

    London as game space. Hiding places. Escape routes. Headquarters. Enemy territory. Jumping fences.

    likes, retweets, replies, etc. are a points-based form of social currency.

    you pick your 'avatar' on social media.

    I'm in Canary Wharf where there's a tap to refill your water bottle. You activate a reward for this good behaviour. Last time I was at the beach they had a similar system to encourage you to pick up litter

    Been waiting for real life computer games. Imagine hundreds of mma trained, parkour guys with live streaming gopros. You tell em what to do with keyboard or voice commands, the more money you pay the more outlandish your requests can be. Pretty much inevitable imo
