You may have noticed I have a new little iKarma badge on the left column of my blog.  iKarma basically is PeopleTrust--a concept that I blogged about earlier this summer.  Its a distributed reputation system.  I'm curious to see the traction that it gets.

So, if you know me and want to leave a comment and rate me, click on the badge.  Tell everyone what you think of me.

I like this better than the rep system on eBay and LinkedIn because those are closed systems and I can't take my rep with me if I leave them or if I just want to maintain a consistant rep across all my digital identities.  I am concerned a bit that this might become another Y.A.F.P., but its hard to seperate out rep from network.  Anyway, it will be interesting to see who bothers to use this and how.
