Tech Observations #6: Gamefy!

So this seems to be the buzzword in cutting-edge newsrooms across the country: how to gamefy news.

Games are all the fad right now — here’s an article about gamifying the news experience — but my focus is not exactly the same.

In later stages, when I incorporate SuperUsers into the mix, I hope to use a few elements of “gamification” to make their experience more rewarding.

A few of my ideas are:

– Creating different levels of SuperUsers, with increasing publishing/editing power in each level

– Allowing a select number of SuperUsers to curate a parallel homepage, where they can curate and post directly to a /superusers page.
