"I’ve never been so frustrated by something that I wanted to be excited about, and where I wanted to see the light bulbs go off, and just hearing (to my ears) empty, meaningless, self-referential chatter."This year's buzz word in the Valley is "gamificaton."
Defined as "adding gameplay to real life" the press is somewhat gaga over the concept of imbuing corporate business sites such as banking and health care with leader boards and puzzles. All of this encouraged by several surprisingly well VC funded start-ups. There is even something called the "Gamification Summit" signing folks up - just in time for the backlash.
