Gamification Weekly
It has been a little quiet around here but I'm excited to let you know that I'm working on a new online gamification resource which will knock your socks off once it's ready to launch. As subscribers you'll be the first to gain access to it when it's ready. However, I will be taking a break from regular Gamification Weekly updates while I continue to work on it.

In the meantime if you're still keen to get your weekly fix of gamification updates then you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter where I'll be posting news and updates.
