Howard Rheingold writes about The Omidyar Network reputation system saying,The Omidyar Network reputation system is a new experiment in designing the social architecture of an online social network. Howard adds,something tells me that the $25,000 offered by the network to its members, to do whatever they agree to do, will energize the experiment.When you join omidyar.net, you start with a feedback bank of 10 points. Your feedback bank can be transferred , one point at a time, as either positive feedback or negative feedback to any member, workspace or discussion. As you use omidyar.net, your feedback bank will increase, based on your usage pattern inside the omidyar.net, and what you do. You earn more "credit" in your feedback bank the more you contribute. If you simply visit and not actively contribute to the body of knowledge i.e you do not initiate a discussion, post discussions etc., your feedback bank will grow far more slowly. If you are an active discussion participant, and you contribute to a group's workspace, your feedback bank will grow more quickly. If someone gives you positive feedback, both your score and your feedback bank will increase by one.
