Make public art and spaces more accessible and interactive

I can see RFID's being used to "game" the experience of living and interacting with an urban space. As people interact with public spaces, architecture, public art and cultural institutions, that interaction could be tracked and converted into points for visiting greenways and park spaces, using public transportation, visiting museums or patronizing locally owned or socially focused businesses and restaurants. These points could translate into perks or recognition, much like foursquare or other social media sites reward use. Encouraging people to engage with the space they occupy builds a sense of history and belonging and helps people feel like part of the community. The city becomes a place where you live, not just a place you go to work for eight hours.
