Akoha – Play it Forward

While browsing my FeedReader this morning I came across this post about Akoha.  Akoha is a game, not on your computer, or your Xbox, but a game with cards.  Cards that people hand to you and you hand to others that allow you to play good deeds forward.  When you get a card, you log on to the site and tell the story of how the card got to you, then you play it forward, passing the card to someone else.

If you’re wondering what this has to do with Libraries or the Social Web, my usual topics, the answer is nothing.  This is an idea and a philopshy I am incredibly excited about.  The potential it represents is thrilling!  I’ve signed up for the Beta and I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll get my cards before MLA, Internet Librairan and ICoLIS!

  1. Hi Bobbi,

    Thanks for signing up to the Akoha beta! The first batch of cards were dropped in the mailbox last night. Yours is probably not in there, but we’re doing a second batch soon.

    As for what it has to do with libraries, we’d love to have a librarian suggest a few missions for us. Libraries are already pay-it-forward institutions for knowledge! We’d love to hear your ideas.



  2. The Pass It Forward Movement is very interested in getting more information about Akoha. Please send a sample to
