Siloed reputation management vs. small town reputation management

The real challenge of reputation management is configuring a reputation system to closely parallel a small town.

 Recently, I was talking about the relatively new identity management area of online reputation management. Some siloed reputation management systems were mentioned (e.g., eBay, Yelp, Trip Advisor), which are the ones always mentioned whenever identity management visionaries get together. But, in reality, what we're looking for goes back much farther than the online age. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
