GovLoop - Knowledge Network for Government

I just came across the site The Fun Theory as a result of seeing this video posted on facebook by a friend ...

 

 

There are a number of other videos at the site that demonstrate the success of novel ideas to get people to act differently, such as reducing speeding by using a speed camera to enter those not speeding into a lottery funded by those caught speeding.

 

It got me to thinking about the possibility of government agencies creating fun ways of influencing behavior. Post your ideas and let's discuss them.

Love it! Pure creative genius. There's got to be something we can do similar to that on the Metro in DC. Everyone always looks like they could use some fun in their lives.

Ah, hah! There's a checkbox at YouTube for using the old embed code which the editor allows. Hmmm, this is not what I meant by fun!
