Jack, our son who is 3 1/2, may have the wrong idea about what his fave AC/DC song, TNT, is all about. He sings "TNT, a dino fight."

My new piece on gamification of communities: the good, the bad, and the ugly - https://opensource.com/business/16/9/gamify-or-not-gamify-community
This month we look at Ubuntu Accomplishments to learn how gamification can help onboard new community members.

Gamification makes me feel like I'm a pawn in a bigger game that I can't control and makes me resist wanting to do more for free because I know I'm being manipulated to play harder. The real reward for me to any form of work is the accomplishment of a job well done that improves the world (even if it is a small thing).
