Extra Credits Inspired?

Just a curiosity. Does anyone know if Duolingo was inspired for Extra Credit's episode on Gamification? I'm not quite sure when the project began, and wondered if there was any inspiration from James' talks about how education could be improved through Gamification.

Here's the relevant episode, for those wondering: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaUGJcPefjE#at=156

First time we see this, so I don't think so :)


Well, you guys did a great job of your own accord. I actually found you through the Extra Credits "Games for Good" Rockethub campaign, where someone mentioned you. They're a great series.
