On Reputation Systems

β€œUniversal reputation systems are evil personified.”

Philip Sheldrake

Context

To be fair - it is what he said, but what he wrote, is a little more meaty ….

β€œProgrammatic 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 β€˜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.

Click here to scroll through what is here - or here if you have a specific one in mind. There are a lot here.

A second series of quotes are stored here. Not as many and are actually more attributed words that appeal, not neccesarily β€˜famous’ in the way the others are..
