This session, proposed by Dan Ariely and Sarah Szalavitz, will investigate the relationship between morality and user engagement online, as well as in real life. Prior to the presentation, we will ask friends and the SXSW community to participate in an experiment to explore how the choices we are offered by user experiences and online communities “game” the outcome—or whether we are making choices at all, if our brains can’t resist seeking Mayorships on FourSquare or growing farms on Farmville…

On the first day of getting to SXSW we came across a poster we couldn’t ignore. It spoke to our primeval, preprogrammed, base level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs instincts.
We scanned it and it took us to the Keep a Breast Foundation’s Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/KeepABreast
Just an excellent campaign. What was also interesting was that the poster remained uncovered for some 3 days as people agreed on how cool this was.
It was also fun to say “I like boobies” in the PSFK mobile tagging event as well.
