Stephanie West Allen emailed me a link to this article: game developers can induce happiness. I’ve been thinking a lot about whether the fun and engagment of online gaming could be ported into less energised parts of our lives and this piece sparks a few thoughts.

(I’m also a little cautious about the postitive psychology movement, but that’s for another day.)
