Jesse Schell, author of “The Art of Game Design”, has started a blog to expand on the themes of his February presentation at the DICE Summit.  In that talk, he predicted that sometime soon game mechanics will become integrated into all sorts of mundane everyday activities.  He expects that governments, corporations, and other organizations will discover power of  games to shape human behavior.  He’s taken to referring to this as the “Gamepocalypse” (and occasionally “Brave New World”).
