Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom

I'm in the middle of reading Cory Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom -- and while you can down load it for free, I'm perhaps old school enough that having the physical book to read is nice, and worth paying for.

I'm really, really intrigued by the Whuffie concept. It strikes me as putting a numeric value on something that really does drive people in their hobbies -- a numeric tally of your egoboo. We sit bits of it already -- I've seen it on Linked In, sort of, and there are lots of other reputation-based systems out there. And in it's own way, the ranking system of Google is sort of like that as well.
