“Universal reputation systems are evil personified.”
To be fair - it is what he said, but what he wrote, is a little more meaty ….
“Programmatic quantification of reputation is an inevitable evil due to the unavoidable self-moderation and modulation it inflicts on its subjects beyond that which might be argued as ‘good for society’. To be clear, the social accretion of local, contextually relevant reputation with forgiving opportunities for reparation has served communities for millennia. We are however considering universal, non-contextual and irremediable scoring and algorithmic assessment.”
For the longest time, I kept quotes in my journalling system - DayONE. I have been stadily moving all of them into this new public space and adding others as I continue to find them.
A second series of quotes are stored here. Not as many and are actually more attributed words that appeal, not neccesarily ‘famous’ in the way the others are..
