Round Table

  • Proposal: "Mr. T Award": a quarterly award given out to an A*Team member for being a rock star that quarter
    • we are all pop stars aspiring to be rock stars, but somebody has to win. Lets discuss if this sounds like a good idea and how we would pick the winner.
  • An idea from Jane McGonigal, a game designer on "how to engineer community participation" - It's an interview all about game design to positively impact gamers and through them, the world at large. I think it has some fascinating implications on how we design the community engagement experience here at Mozilla and engineer for participation in a digital medium. (Not advocating we make everything a game - but I think we can learn from her by the way she designs her games).
    • Interview - 1 hour long
    • Ctalbert reading her book now, will offer to buy it for anyone who's interested.
    • Ctalbert might also try to get her to do a brownbag at Mozilla on this topic once I finish the book.
