Had a wonderfully mind-stretching time this morning chairing a session for the Winmark L&D network with Nick Shackleton-Jones leading a discussion about Gamification.

The session spurred a number of thoughts for me – here are a few of the related links:

Recently about how habit might be a better model for thinking about change than the Change Curve: Changing habits

And a bit of a rant… https://mmitii.mattballantine.com/2015/07/07/pavlovs-metric

Books mentioned:

Charles Duhiggs’s Power of Habit
Nir Eyal’s HookedNir Eyal’s Hooked
Dan Lyon’s DisruptedDan Lyon’s Disrupted
Dave Eggers’ The Circle
and Sunstein & Thaler’s Nudge

The source of the “data as nuclear waste” metaphor is in this talk.
