Niche for Authors & speculators

IMHO an author wants to get published, get his ideas & thoughts out into the world & maybe rewarded by acclaim, respect, more offers to write, prizes Pullitzer et al, & maybe down the list with money &/or the unfettered ability to continue to write. My question is fbi moving in that direction – not that it should .
 

I used it as a spare brain/mind & note pad remember (CyberMind™ ) & a free-form way to gather my thoughts, manage my many projects & talk to my bros. 

As far as monetizing namespaces I can think of Godaddy, & social networks which advertize & benefit by participation.

Then too, there are a lot of more interesting games on the Internet than word games on a blog site.  Also the gambling & gaming sites have bigger rewards. Porno is a multi-billion industry also. ….. just saying & …

Yes. Well as big as those are in their circles, they are only a fraction of the games played every day. Millions of hours a day are spent playing game console and computer games of all kinds, not just by kids either, as much by adults, and not just shoot em up games, but solitaire and many more. Only a fraction of the games played by people each day have any actual rewards. Most people play just because they want to, because it’s fun, because they find it engaging and challenging to be doing something other than life … which if they realized life itself is just a big game they came here to play they might do otherwise, but it is what it is and its very much a way to engage people in these times.

there is a difference between games where there are no consequences irl beyond just in the game, and ones where there are real, shareable consequences.  Trust me on that, i used to live with a gamer.  Then too when i started out on the net, way before even lynx hit the scene, i was trying to be “The printer broker of the Internet” … i talked in chat with many people … mostly in prepress newsgroups and email.  Thing is, for me, even though i was playing a “game” i still was expecting to create some real consequences all around … but i rapidly found out that perception was just mine … others were just imagining they were doing something … but when it came to actually manifesting consequences, suddenly they disappeared.   There is much to say about this field of games and dreams.

Could attach a mild shock via electronics if you need a consequence.  Most go for money like gambling.

Why do you qualify everything we do or think with some spin? What do you get out of that kind of bullying?

And to fastgameit.com, the point is not to be a game site, the point is to game the world as it is. I guess you still have not watched the ted talk.
Mark 2016-02-02 13:56:06 [item 19836#44273]
none of that is true!  try looking at other perspectives … “gaming the world” would be a pejoritve to some – ask someone besides yourself … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD5LxfrUeCM 
well i can confirm dA’s observation about you always putting a netative spin on things.  that part is true.

gameify ...or gaming the world ...like in the TED talk … and taking that kind of an attitude on life is a real big topic.  It really has nothing to do with the well known problems with gambeling on the net … or even for that matter with starry yeyed gamers doing shoot em ups on their game boys.   So getting to the real topic of gamifying thinking.domains is not going to be found in the particular negative spin that you are bringing up … at least in my humble opinion.

Mark. When you say things like “Could attach a mild shock via electronics if you need a consequence.” which you do say some spin like that to nearly everything Seth or I write, you are simply bullying with words. It has no other value.
Like you are doing right now by reasserting the same lack of truth.

So far you have not shown that you have any experience or understanding of this subject. Everything you have related about it is about other aspects of games, not gaming normal things people do. If you really are interested, watch the ted talk and then you can talk about these points with us in this context. Otherwise, you are just talking about things that have nothing to do with what we are doing here and your comments are eating up useless cycles for you and us. 
Sorry, dude I am not in the same trance you are in!  Nonspecifics induces trance – Richard Bandler , TR & others are good references. No evidence yet on your games just your agenda & dogma.

Well both purposes ….  using a thinking.domains as a “spair mind” … and a author reaching for her audience … blend quite well in the same media.  Why should they even be separated?   I have already been intending both purposes in my group seth and also in the other groups in which i participate.   We have yet to get the social sharing going on the permalink of a thought (and or a tag room, or a group room) … but i suspect that is coming soon. That is how a author  reaches out to a larger audience.

It depends upon how much eyeball time is required for the games! laughing
seth 2016-02-02 11:06:12 [item 19836#44249]
yes  yes these games should not be obtrusive … should not be stumbling blocks to using the media. 
dA 2016-02-02 11:44:35 [item 19836#44250]
A properly designed game is something people will naturally want to do. People like games, they seek them out and spend billions of hours a year doing them. Life is a game we came here to play. It could be said that the whole point of life is to be fully immersed in a game.

The point of gaming something is to connect with people’s desires and expand the experience they want to have through the elements of the game. To leverage what they already want to do with win-win scenarios for them and us.

If you will watch and absorb http://www.ted.com/talks/jane_mcgonigal_gaming_can_make_a_better_world you will understand this better than I can relate.
