The topic will be:
Affero: Rating & Reputation Service for Online Works
presented by: Chris Reed, Affero, Inc.
Affero enables recognition of valuable online interactions. They provide
the means to offer feedback and say "thank you" for support and
information provided via ratings and monetary donations to non/profit
organizations without disrupting the natural dialogue in the community.
Affero combines a peer based reputation system with a commerce system.
It enables individuals to rate other individuals and make payments on
their behalf. Any person can rate another person's contribution.
The system doesn't come bundled with any particular forum or community
platform, so any independent community host can integrate the services
and individuals can share reputation across various communities
(mailing lists, web forums, web logs (blogs), and so on).
