Michael, Michael, and Phaedra get back together for an exciting show all about the latest games related to Google Glass, and while we are at it we talk about the incredible Google IO Keynote and Larry Page’s triumphant return to the stage. Google comes out swinging at this year’s Google IO conference, talking about openness, games, education, and it’s all available on Google Island. If you’ve not seen it, watch it here:
After talking about 3D printing the other week, we discover even more craziness with a high capacity assault weapons now available from your nearest 3D Printer, and While we talk about all this Googlely fun, we also play a bit of GeoGuessing.
Welcome back (since this is the 2nd episode) to Games@Work.biz and we’ve decided to make a game of our podcast. We spend this episode trying to figure out where the game is within some basic business activities. Ideation, Brainstorming, Online Banking, and Microsoft adds badges to Visual Studio. We even come up with a game idea for GIT and reputation management.We would love to get your ideas on how to improve the game of inventory. While Michael Rowe remembers the wrong people in a great Saturday Night Live Skit – “What the Hell is that?”
Hopefully we will have one of the authors of – Gamestorming on an upcoming episode.
Your friendly neighborhood podcasters are swinging back into action again with a new podcast for a new year — games at work. The inaugural episode 00001 (both in binary and base 10!) kicks off with your trio of hosts, Michael Martine, Andy Piper and Michael Rowe consider several games, from Foursquare to Waze to Oink to Square, and how the social interaction and competition among friends helps to keep the gamers coming back for more.
Games at Work goes back to the early roots of what brought your hosts together in the first place — a love of games and how the intersection with business and social technologies make them more than simple pastimes. The podcast will explore where games are being used for business results today and how existing games may be adapted to new ways of creating social, economic and other values.
We’d like to thank Zebes System for their awesome version of the MoonPatrol theme.
