    If you spare a half hour, this is the future you wrote about, Mr. Ellis.

    Damn entertaining, as someone who works in the games industry I can say it is a future of probability. Orwell would be rolling in coffin right about now.

    But isn't this something that would happen only if we gave permission for these "apps" to be running and collecting points? I mean, yes this may be in the mainstream, but the example he gave would seem to be for someone who has agreed to all apps that distribute points. Of all the ideas he was throwing out there, there were about four or so that I would most likely agree to use.

    I can't imagine an app would be mandatory for things like food and shopping and I think that even if signing you up for these things, you will always have the option to NOT keep track of your day to day routine.

    I think to an extent it exists at the moment in the form of perfomance related pay and bonus structures statistical targets etc. To extrapolate that further to actually add some game value to these things within business has potential that considering it making my head spin. It could be positive or negative. Either will probably piss lots of people off. If that's the way it goes that's the way it goes.
