The New Reputation Economy - What You Need to Know

The New Reputation Economy - What You Need to Know | Mind and Media | Scoop.it

This article was written by Rachel Botsman for WiredUK. I posted her Ted Talk the other day on this relevant, evolving topic., the reputation economy.


Rachel goes deeper into this with great insights, information and takeaways that are important for all of us professionally and personally.  




"Imagine a world where banks take into account your online reputation alongside traditional credit ratings to determine your loan;


**where headhunters hire you based on the expertise you've demonstrated on online forums such as Quora;


**where your status from renting a house through Airbnb helps you become a trusted car renter on WhipCar 


**where your feedback on eBay can be used to get a head-start selling on Etsy 

1` egfb

**where traditional business cards are replaced by profiles of your digital trustworthiness, updated in real-time.


Where reputation data becomes the window into how we behave, what motivates us, how our peers view us and ultimately whether we can or can't be trusted.

Welcome to the reputation economy, where your online history becomes more powerful than your credit history.


An aggregated online reputation having a real-world value holds enormous potential for sectors where trust is fractured:


**banking; e-commerce, where value is exponentially increased by knowing who someone really is


**peer-to-peer marketplaces, where a high degree of trust is required between strangers;


**where a traditional approach based on disjointed information sources is currently inefficient, such as recruiting. .


Early influence and reputation aggregators will undoubtedly learn by trial and error -- but they will also face the significant challenge of pioneering the use of reputation data in a responsible way.


There's a challenge beyond that: reputation is largely contextual, so it's tricky to transport it to other situations.


It's the culmination of many layers of reputation you build in different places that genuinely reflect who you are as a person and figuring out exactly how that carries value in a variety of contexts.


The most basic level is verification The larger opportunity is carrying social matches based on like-minded individuals across marketplaces.

TED Blog | New TED Book: Mind Amplifier | Mind and Media | Scoop.it

Augmentation always requires the individual human brain, the technological extension and the methods, language, and training that support use of the technology, and social communication among populations of individuals. In this extended e-book, I try to situate augmentation in the historical progression of human biological and cultural evolution and project a vision of where it might go in the future. -- Howard


"Mind Amplifier: Can Our Digital Tools Make Us Smarter? examines the origins of digital mind-extending tools, and lays out the foundations for their future. In it, Rheingold proposes an applied, interdisciplinary science of mind amplification. He also unveils a new protocol for developing techno-cognitive-social technologies that embrace empathy, mindfulness, and compassion — elements lacking from existing digital mind-tools."

European report on the future of learning

European report on the future of learning | Mind and Media | Scoop.it

To determine how education and training policy can adequately prepare learners for life in the future society, there is a need to envisage what competences will be relevant and how these will be acquired in 2020-2030. The report identifies key factors for change that emerge at the interface of the visions painted by different stakeholder groups and arranges them into a descriptive vision of the future of learning in 2020-2030. In a second step, the report discusses future solutions to pending challenges for European Education and Training systems and outlines policy options

Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence

Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | Mind and Media | Scoop.it

"Let’s focus on the resulting element — the “collective intelligence”. Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described “collective intelligence” as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into “collective intelligence” far beyond what we have today."

How The Brain Rewires Itself

How The Brain Rewires Itself | Mind and Media | Scoop.it

"FOR DECADES, THE PREVAILING DOGMA IN neuroscience was that the adult human brain is essentially immutable, hardwired, fixed in form and function, so that by the time we reach adulthood we are pretty much stuck with what we have. Yes, it can create (and lose) synapses, the connections between neurons that encode memories and learning. And it can suffer injury and degeneration. But this view held that if genes and development dictate that one cluster of neurons will process signals from the eye and another cluster will move the fingers of the right hand, then they'll do that and nothing else until the day you die. There was good reason for lavishly illustrated brain books to show the function, size and location of the brain's structures in permanent ink.ut research in the past few years has overthrown the dogma. In its place has come the realization that the adult brain retains impressive powers of "neuroplasticity"--the ability to change its structure and function in response to experience."
