How games can change the world. Jane Mc Gonigal at TED.

Are Games related to the teaching of virtues?

I was amazed about the many participations there are in this issue at TED.

Virtues she mentions: blissful productivity, epic meaning, social fabric and urgent optimism.

Entertainment gives immediate feedback, collaborative ambiences, stronger relations…

Examples: gamers were requested to immagine scenarios with “worl wothout oil” game, and the “global extintion awareness system”.

Idea that gamers are human resources able to help in change processes.

“Let the world-changing games begin!”

Simon Sinek: very inspiring conference about “value driven” leadership (is there another kind?)

“They don’t buy what you do, but why you do it. (…) They buy what you believe”.

How the brain is aligned with the golden circles. About loyalty. Apple’s example, and why Langley did not succeed in front of Wright brothers: really inspiring!. The curve of innovation, TiVO and Martin Luther King.

His Bio from http://www.ted.com/speakers/simon_sinek.html: Student in anthropology, convinces people to do what inspires them. Worked in advertising, started Sinek Partners in 2002, now helping his friends and their friends to find their “why” . Sinek also contributes to several efforts in the non-profit sphere. He writes and teaches a graduate-level class in strategic communications at Columbia University.

Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds. (Isn’t this useful for team building?)

Expert  on animal behavior, Temple Grandin’s improvements to animal-handling systems found in slaughterhouses have decreased the amount of fear and pain that animals experience in their final hours, and she is widely considered the world’s leading expert on the welfare of cattle and pigs. Her books about her interior life as an autistic person have increased the world’s understanding of the condition.

She sustains that the world needs different brains: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.

Libros: Creadores (de Paul Johnson)

El creador de libros como “Tiempos Modernos” propone una serie de biografías de creadores y creativos. Especialmente interesantes las de Disney, Picasso, Tiffany. La introducción “Anatomia del coraje creativo” no tiene desperdicio.

“Screw it, let’s do it”, en español “Hagámoslo”

Interesante, entretenido, habla de cómo ha hecho fortuna, pero sobre todo, se ha divertido.

How television projects our system of values.

As Argentinean it makes me think a lot about it.
