Social Future Forum Logo

When there’s something that I’ve learned over the last week, then it’s that online forums are a really hard sell in this AHDH-ish age dominated by Facebook and Twitter.

In ...

Quantified Prestige – A Brief Introduction

Posted by:

I’m feeling the need to write something about the hybrid reputation/money system called Quantified Prestige I’m working on. Even though the full documentation of Quantified Prestige has been online for quite some time, I haven’t announced it publicly on this blog, yet. So, I’m doing that now.

Quantified Prestige is a system that can be used for building a full-fledged reputation based economy. At the moment it is only a theoretical system, as I’m still haven’t finished its first software ...
