One of the big things I'm taking-away so far reading the platform -op book is that we really need a standards-based reputation/identity system.

I remember reading some protocol-level work on this a few years back when I was getting into architectures.

Clearly something that demands a decentralized approach.

@jjg A couple of years back, I worked on this for the Zero State to help accomplish that very thing alongside Quantified Prestige as the reputation management protocol. It's kind of old, I wrote it back in 2010, so take it with a grain of salt.


@drwho this is really interesting, thanks for sharing.

Can I ask what came of it?

@jjg Nothing that I know of. I know nothing about web application design, and I don't know what the status of Quantified Prestige is. Haven't heard from the architect in a couple of years.
