Take a half hour out of your undoubtedly busy day, and listen to what all she has to propose.

And now, how crazy are these ideas?
Are they so crazy as to throw our world further into chaos,
or are they just crazy enough to work; Even on a limited scale?

at first it all seemed really crazy, but towards the end it was explained well.

maybe i'll think that for every task i finish i get an achievement.

So who is she exactly? Being a 'game designer' doesn't really help me out at all @_@

But yes, it does start of sounding very crazy. In the long run I doubt this would work out as it would just become another world saving 'buzz phrase' that would be great in theory, but not enough practice is done to make it worthwhile.

well, thinking it would work should be the first step.

The 1st thing that came into my mind after watching that was, does she actually believe in what she is saying? because to me that was pure drivel.
