Reputation Filter

The recent surge in numbers of blog posts discussing reputation has forced me to specify filter criteria in my feed reader - I simply can no longer keep up with the traffic.
grep "social"

Alas, neither Gerry's post nor Radovan's post met the criteria. I do wonder what arguments they made ....

Some attributes are intrinsic to a user, some extrinsic, emerging from that user's social interactions with others. The latter are candidates for reputation, the former not.

Somewhat related, based on intrinsic value, there are bargains (i.e. intrinsic > market) to be had in the turbulent equity markets. Warren Buffet has a reputation for finding them.
