Product Details


By giving the reader a broad understanding of the positive and negative aspects of reputation systems out there, [The Reputation Society] touches upon almost all aspects of society affected by these online systems. Many of the authors also discuss next steps in how to improve reputation systems or restructure them to allow them to better serve the public good, whether it be in the realm of science, philanthropy, or justice.—Journal of High Technology Law

The book contains a collection of essays exploring the development of online reputations from some of the field’s leading experts and even a few thoughts from Internet pioneers like Craig Newmark, of fame…. Building reputation systems is the easy part. Figuring out the benefits and downfalls of their proliferation is where things get tricky, particularly because there are ratings systems that are useful, and some that are a lot less helpful.

The Londoner

The carefully collected essays in this timely book provide readers with intelligent, multidisciplinary insights into the roles reputation and trust play in social systems…Overall, this book offers a very accessible yet rigorous introduction to reputation systems, while also covering several important subjects in great detail.

ACM Computing Reviews

The premise of this book is an interesting one—not that reputation in itself is intrinsically valuable and thus worth pursuing, but that the structure of the online universe, the Internet in all its forms, is actually changing the way individuals and organizations are being perceived and treated….A very interesting book…
