Another exciting episode!!! With the Michael M. and Michael R. as we think thru two interesting games. The first being a new website to proposes to teach you how to program in Python using game mechanics… and then second is a bit of brain storming around the kid (or cat) wrangling game using connected devices and sensors! Do you think that game is worth it? What are the right incentives? Would it have the desired outcomes? Can you help improve our game? If so, drop us a comment down below, or tweet to us at @GamesAtWork_Biz .

Is change in the air?

We have another week without a show. While each of us is sad to say this, we also are working to improve the show. Now that all four co-hosts are all in the same timezone and three out of four are actually within a 30 mile diameter. What do you think of a video podcast? We’ve been dealing with setting up a video channel on YouTube, but have not had much success to date on Google Hangouts.

Let us know what you think, and what would make Games At Work dot Biz more valuable to you. Thank you for all your support to date.
