Stanford Persuasive Technology Lab

This is the study of “computers” as persuasive technologies. This includes the design, research, and analysis of interactive computing products created for the purpose of changing people’s attitudes or behaviors.

The interesting bit is what the Stanford Persuasive Technology Lab does, essentially researching how persuasive interactive technologies can bring about positive change in the world, which includes their World Peace in 30 years project. Their blog is also quite charmin’.
