Undoubtedly they do. What's become more apparent is the degree to which audiences participate in that though. There had been something of a more generalized faith in the organic side of Internet-powered things to self-correct it, but personally I think that argument has largely failed to prove out.

Sorry I haven't paid for your services yet, I have benefited greatly by reading your words and watching how you engage. Also a fan of Mario Herger and a few other fine folks like the Games For Change crew. Not so much the Linkedin groups, perhaps I need to find new ones as the spam, irrelevant stuff and junk takes up too much time to filter. If you know of a good clean Gamification group, I'd love to know about it. AND. Tadhg, thank you!
