Denis, your post brought a smile to my face, on the issue of the badges and such. I do have some answers on the "money" as incentive thing, though, and you see it a lot. You always get unintended negative consequences from reward systems (any ones, but the more valuable, the worse it gets). Olympic Badminton Scandal: Beware The Rewards And Goals You Set is one article you might want to look at: http://performance-appraisals.org/Bacalsappraisalarticles/articles/olympicgoals.htm

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
