As Rowin points out that badges ‘draw upon widespread use of badges and achievements in gaming‘ and as somebody who has many badges and achievements in various game systems I can’t help but wonder if some of the problems that have cropped up in games might cross over into the Open Badge Initiative.

David goes on to outline some historical problems with badges. I think badges may be useful in a lot of circumstances, but would like to see more posts like this, talking about the problems with them.
