More – Your Professional Reputation On The Web

  • October 20, 2010

Honestly.comA site that was previously known as Unvarnished, Honestly lets anybody rate and review his coworkers. That is an anonymous process, but those reviews that are indeed accurate will give the ones who penned them reputation points, and the more points the user garners then the more respected he will obviously become.

In addition to having a new name, now the site has opened up in a grand scale. Previously, only people who worked at any of the 200 tech companies that were featured were allowed to claim a profile. On the contrary, now anybody can sign in via Facebook and become reviewable through the site.

The one drawback that sites like this one have is that they are always open to personal vendettas and retaliations from former colleagues. That can’t be helped, but the site complicates thing unnecessarily by not letting users remove comments manually. The only reason something would be taken off the site is if it is illegal. And those who have had a profile created can’t opt out of it, either. The profile will be sitting there whether they like it or not.

More – Public Helps Approve Patents

  • August 1, 2007

PeertoPatent.orgIt is a rare occurence when the government gets innovative. But that is exaclty what has happened at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which has launched a pilot program with the New York Law School.

Peer-to-Patent is a community review project that allows online peer review of pending patent applications. The pilot is focusing on software and computer programs since that is an area where they have received consistent complaints and which they admit they don’t have the resources or expertise to adequately review. Of course you have to qualify to become an official peer reviewer and they have limited the scope of the pilot to 250 patents, but it is still a huge step forward for a major government bureaucracy. Companies that have submitted applications include GE, Intel, HP, IBM, Red Hat and Microsoft.

Faroo.comFaroo is the p-2-p (peer-to-peer) search engine which believes that searching really ought to be decentralized. Internet architecture itself is decentralized, I personally like to think the WWW stands for Wild, Wild, West.

Faroo scours the frontier based on what you, the searcher, thinks is relevant, with out any central institution gun slingin.´ Nothing stands in the way of the information you want and the searcher, because all pages are ranking based on user ranking. In the same manner, those who provide the content are to be sure their content will be found, since all Faroo search results are current, comprehensive and efficient.
