myTechEd Badge Rewards, an interesting parallel

A few years ago or so, Microsoft introduced myTechEd Badge Rewards program as a way to reward their community for participating in things like “participating”, “sharing” and “interaction.”

TechEd wants to reward you for engaging with our content and sharing it with your peers. You’re already doing that, right? myTechEd Badge Rewards lets you earn credit for your actions and gives you access to special incentives, including virtual badges and points.
