The Gamification of Science

Videos are somewhat of a recent phenomenon but anyone who’s a fan of them know that they’re really hard to stop playing once you get started. There are plenty of reasons for this, many are immersive and are the perfect escape from realty. Others feed off of people’s natural competitive nature with scoreboards and incentives like achievements, rewards and badges. The reason games are so appealing is rooted deep in human psychology and there has been a recent trend to take advantage of this called gamification.

The definition of Gamification taken from Wikipedia: the use of game design techniques and mechanics to solve problems and engage audiences. This is the idea behind Foldit. It’s a game which researchers have developed in order to enlist the help of gamers in deciphering the structure of a key protein in the development AIDS. It’s a structure which scientists haven’t been able to identify for years but now have thanks to the online game Foldit. And it only took gamers three weeks to come up with the answer. This is a great story of games being used to solve real world problems and you can read more about Foldit here.

VZW.com blocked by Vipre?

I’ve written to Vipre’s forum about this but have received no response. I’d like to know how they determine if a site is potentially dangerous.

Vipre warning on VZW.com

And what brought me there? None other than the initial privacy-related email from Verizon. It’s all about my Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) and whether they can share it with their family of companies. Of course if trends continue, that family of companies might include content creators like Fox, so I’m going to opt-out.

Verizon Share CPNI ButtonNo problem, click the button, right?

And now I have to disable my firewall to protect my privacy. I hope this doesn’t signal the fashion of the rest of the week!

Be Well!

Obama finishes what Bush started

Catching up with news this morning, I was pleasantly surprised by news that CIA, after 4 years of what I assume was painstaking intelligence work, tracked Osama Bin Laden to his home of at least the past 6 years. While I’d love to have heard that he was captured, the news that he was killed, removing his visage from the Most Wanted list (once they update their website), this is good news.

To read more, i found the following resources to be the most informative. I’ll be streaming NPR.org as long as they focus the news on this.



I close by offering my heartfelt support to those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. This week will undoubtedly raise emotions not pondered in some years and our thoughts are with them today.

Get Business with Google Places

In 2010, we started optimizing our client’s Google places locations, or claiming them if they were the automated ones with little customization.

One such page was one for Eagle Rivet, one of our ct web design clients. One of the phrases we built in was ct roof snow removal, and they couldn’t be happier with the seasonal jobs they’ve gotten to pick up as a result!

Don’t over look this for your business! Here’s why:

  • The top Google places results are shown at the top or above natural results
  • Google Places provide functionality like reviews that can help you sell customers before they call
  • Google places doesn’t require a website!

SEO Press Releases

We use SEO focused press releases to build links for our customers, some as the situation demands and others on a regular bi-weekly or monthly basis.

Here are 3 recent examples:

1) Paris Food Markets Iphone App

2) Floormall implements customer friendly features

3) A shelter for your vintage car

Those are for 3 different customers, and while what we do for each business is different, our SEO press releases usually include:

  • You provide us with the major points of your upcoming news release.
  • We’ll write a release that describes your news in appropriate terms and offers the necessary keyword text for the links we’ll be adding.
  • We’ll send this to you to edit.
  • Once we get it back we’ll tweak as necessary and perform a submission.
  • We code in up to 3 links to your website with the link text that we are targeting for you.
  • The submission pushed the SEO PR out to about 85 websites.
  • Usually about 30 pick it up and about half of those publish the 3 links we put in the release
  • We’ll send you a report about 3 business days after we submit with the URLs of all sites that picked it up.

Our service uses a wide submission for sites that are all press release focused and offer the opportunity to submit links in the release.
