  • RT @vkhosla:"Gamification will become pervasive in everything from education to health to shopping." http://t.co/R6YBJA6C #
  • Analyst covering Apple charged with insider trading: http://t.co/6CsY2vvC. We teach this subject to every Wharton MBA. #
  • Bit of both. RT @martinvars: Was Lightsquared ban a result of good testing or good lobbying? I don't really know http://t.co/R5B1muEU #
  • @martinvars Problem with exclusive spectrum allocation is that the worst incumbent receiver is protected. No incentive for efficiency. #
  • @GlennF Yes, the FCC/NTIA followed the science (vs. false predictions it would favor an Obama supporter). Still, spectrum policy is broken. #
  • @GlennF Incentive auctions a great idea. But devil is in the details, as always. I'm relieved they didn't kill white spaces in the process. #
  • @GlennF Give it time. FCC white space rules too restrictive, but the big opportunity was never "super-WiFi" (whatever that means). #
  • Behavioral economics legend Richard Thaler misses the point. There is more to fun than over-valuing rewards! http://t.co/uJjgPQZP #
  • Like all behaviorist theories, behavioral economics has a blind spot around motivation, so it struggles with play and fun. #
  • OTOH, focusing on why people act a certain way produces results. True for kids and for adults. http://t.co/8HaNbpBs #gamification #
  • Serious #gamification beats behavioral economics because people are a feature, not a bug. #
