What it’s like to work for Stripe | Alex MacCaw

Smallest Federated Wiki Videos
Slightly mind-bendy (the browser window becomes a "client" for a wiki that comes from your server, everyone else's servers, and local storage). Some nice ideas, like "stacking" pages and allowing extra visualisations to be included in the same browser window. Also "stacking" of paths in the page URL. A little tricky to get up and running - identity is the main issue when you "claim" your wiki - but worth investigating for the good ideas.

Against Well-designed Reputation Systems (An Argument for Community Patent). Many-to-Many:
"Digg seems to have suffered more from both system gaming and public concern over its methods, possibly because the lack of organic growth of its methods prevented it from becoming legitimized over time in the eyes of its users."

Dancing to Kim's tune - Asia - Pacific - International Herald Tribune
"After five months of training, 20,000 schoolchildren filling the side of one of the world's largest stadiums flip giant cards with such synchronicity that they form a gigantic screen flashing picture-quality images and communist slogans." (via Nelson)

october 2005 by TomC Why some social network services work and others don't -- Or: the case for object-centered sociality
No mention of myspace though? Through music streaming and shared calendars, MySpace is either going to collapse in on itself, or become the de facto third place for the entire teenage population of the globe.
