Its time to get serious and play some games

Seriously people, we need to “play”.  Forrester Research just came out with an article that describes the application of the gaming field to non-gaming environments (work/productivity).  Reading this blog was as close as I could immediately get to their near $800 dollar article on the topic. 

The actual experience that they show in the blog of sitting around in a 3D world having a virtual conference looks terrible and I would never use something like this.  I think the biggest disappointment in the examples is that they are trying to replicate interactions and experiences that we already use outside of a virtual world – there’s not really a very strong drive among consumers to mimic a conference room experience (it’s almost pointless). 

What could definitely happen though is that a completely new interaction/process/experience could be created in this space whose productivity could, at least in the early stages, compete with the productivity of a different interaction/experience/process.  

I guess the innovation here is what is more interesting to me.
