  Reputation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Reputation is the general opinion (more technically, a social evaluation) of the public toward a person, a group of people, or an organization.
In fact, reputation is a highly dynamic phenomenon in two distinct senses: it is subject to change, especially as an effect of corruption, errors, deception, etc.; and it emerges as an effect of a multi-level bidirectional process.
Reputation proceeds from the level of individual cognition (when is born, possible as an image, but not always) to the level of social propagation (at this level, it not necessarily believed from any agent) and from this level back to that of individual cognition again (when it is accepted).

 Reputation
Reputation provides what Axelrod refers to as "the shadow of the future", with participants in a system considering the effect of current misbehavior on future interactions, even if future interactions are with different people.
Reputation systems are more readily thought of as those systems that attempt to attach reputation to an identity and make an ongoing assessment of that reputation.
In summary, useful reputation mechanisms cannot and should not be designed without regards to the economics of the problem, but rather through a careful consideration of both the computational and incentive aspects of well-functioning reputation systems.

 Reputation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The notion of reputation is commonly used in social life and economy, and there exists a common sense regarding its meaning.
Reputation can be seen as a state variable that gives evidence about the missing information; thus, reputation gives the incentives to providers and consumers to behave properly.
However, the accurate calculation of the reputation value by itself may not be adequate as a mechanism to improve the achievable efficiency of high-performing peers and to provide the right incentives for peers to offer services of high quality.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Reputation (As Property)
In much the same way his reputation, which is the outcome of his meritorious activity, is his property.
We assume, of course, that reputation is the opinion held by many about a person's life and behaviour.
Granted that this is founded upon error or ignorance as to the actual conditions, still the isolated knowledge of one or other as to the real state of affairs confers no right to take from him the general favourable appreciation which he, as a matter of fact, enjoys.

 Mindjack - Feature - Spinning the Web: The Realities of Online Reputation Management
"Online reputation management" is reminiscent of the political term "spin control." But the Internet is not traditional media, and opportunities for controlling one's reputation are quite different – in theory unlimited, but in practice limited by an almost inherent lack of focus, and the countervailing weight of mainstream media.
However, compared to the vast readership of a reputation manager like the Associated Press, with tens of millions of readers, or newscaster Paul Harvey, with enormous credibility and over 10 million devoted listeners, they are but a drop in the bucket, promising though they may be.
Mainstream media, by the "permission of the marketplace", is for practical purposes a push technology – unless people start throwing their morning paper in the trash unread, and put the radio and TV in the closet.

 Review of Conte, Rosaria and Paolucci, Mario: Reputation in Artificial Societies: Social Beliefs for Social Order
The authors stress that reputation cannot be understood as a "static attribute, rigidly codified as footprints of social hierarchy".
The first chapter of this part consists of a description of a socio-cognitive model of reputation, in which reputation is understood in terms of the output of a social process of information transmission that works on an input that is called the "image of the agent".
Reputation is viewed as a "secondary effect of reciprocal altruism", because it allows trustworthy partners to be selected and their identities to be kept hidden from utilitarian agents and because agents have a higher probability of survival and reproduction if they provide material and informational help to one another.

 Reputation Management (Alertbox Feb. 1998)
The simplest reputation manager would compute the average rating for each information source, but more advanced services would use ideas from collaborative filtering and compute different ratings for different users.
The resulting reputation can be used to direct users to sites that will be helpful or interesting, and it can be used to filter out the less valuable contributors in chat rooms and online discussions.
Reputation management will be especially valuable when combined with micro-payments: once you have to pay for clicks, you will be motivated to find out in advance whether the destination website is any good.

 Reputation Capital and Exchange Mechanisms
A reputation exchange is similar to a currency exchange, but trades in reputation capital instead of money.
A particularly compelling feature is that reputation exchanges - unlike their currency-backed counterparts - are not zero-sum, in that the process of converting a reputation does not destroy the old one - it merely enables some reputation carry-though systems.
Or if a person on a Pymmetry-based system wants to move some of their reputation capital to a moderation-based system, they will be able to do so as long as their respective admins have linked in the reputation management framework and have defined some rules for the reputation exchange.

 Manifesto for the Reputation Society   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Reputation and wealth are also both signals of some underlying task performed that is of value to others, albeit noisy signals — chance, deception, and the passiveness of observers all play a part.
Conversely, positive reputation as used by established institutions like museums, operas, and universities is a potential strategy, if for example a music fan would choose to pay some amount to become a "patron" of a band, in return for public acknowledgement of their status and access to a repository of the band’s music.
Deliberate skewing of reputations by those who benefit from their inaccuracy is one of the greatest operational problems reputation systems will face, once they have dealt with implementation issues like privacy and authentication.
