Following Jane McGonigal's featured speaker presentation at BlackBerry DevCon, she sat down with @berryvic to answer a few questions. I didn't have a chance to attend her session, but talking to a few of the people who did attend they said it was really awesome.

So if you've got 12 minutes, sit back, relax and check out the video above. You'll be glad you did! And if you like what you hear, be sure to check out Jane's book, Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World.

Jane is phenomenal! She clearly understands the game industry inside-out and how organizations can take advantage of key game features such as feedback. I wish the girl interviewing her asked better questions to take the conversation in a more intense direction though....

Still, it's definitely a good sign that RIM has people like her on board. RIM has a lot of talent and they need to keep that talent to continue coming out with amazing products.

Having attended the session, I have to agree with jasonec's use of the term "phenomenal". I found her comments inspiring. If you get a chance to attend another of her sessions in future, by all means don't miss it!
