Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Is this just reputation management you're after, or is it
a real, PGP-like security web of trust?

If the former, take a look at /. metamoderation:

Subject:  [thelist] trust metrics for online communities

looking in how to build online communities so not too much crap can get in.
Good articles I've found:
and epinions web of trust
I'm especially interested in articles explaining how to implement a
scalable solution (my god! I'm buzzwording). I'm not sure if I want a "web
of trust" style, where some people can be trusted by some, and distrusted
by others, or a plain rating, where people get x stars.
