Had an opportunity to watch your Ted Talk. Many Congratulations for what you have discovered personally and shared with the world at large. Your perspective on social games as an enabler for positive psychology does provide a unique dimension to how the humankind can benefit from this phenomena. Looking forward to understanding this more and becoming a part of the wonderful movement that you have been pursuing.

Just wanted to thank you for creating this space Jane!  I'm looking forward to looking around.  Currently passing back through the San Francisco Bay Area and have always been inspired by your work and lectures – currently I'm very interested in learning more about game applications for wireless sensors for both fun and educational purposes.  At the moment I'm working in Business Development at Variable, Inc., a Series-A startup that makes the NODE wireless sensor platform for smart devices.  Recently CNN Money called it the "coolest gizmo" at 2013 CES: http://money.cnn.com/2013/01/17/technology/innovation/node-sensor/

I wasn't sure how to message... Hello Ms Jane M. I am McKenzie Black studying game design at the University of the Arts. I drove all the way to your lecture yesterday evening and I have never been more inspired. It is one thing to watch it online like i did before then to see it in person I nearly cried honestly. I look up to you as a mentor.. so I was wondering if you offer any internships or could point me in the right direction you see. I have ideas just like yours and like you I just want to use gaming as a tool to make this world better. Thats all I ever wanted in life. Thank you so much for what you do - McKenzie Black 443-752-7003 or email me at mblack@uarts.edu IMG_2374.jpg
