 +What do Amazon’s product reviews, eBay’s feedback score system, Slashdot’s Karma System, and Xbox Live’s Achievements have in common? They’re all examples of successful reputation systems that enable consumer websites to manage and present user contributions effectively. With this book, you’ll learn how a reputation system can enhance your business, and what it takes to design and develop one of your own.

 +If you’re building, operating, or participating in a website or online application, Building Web Reputation Systems will help you discover why these underlying mechanisms are critical for any organization that draws on—or plans to include—user-generated content.</td>

-The first draft of Chapter 2 - [[chapter2]] is now available for review and it's all about our reputation graphical grammar - the linchpin of the book and probably the most important work we're doing. Please take a look and leave feedback.+<blockquote> 
 +“I like the scope of the book. It provides a lot of new material about a field that is struggling to leap from black art to science, and it provides a lot of useful anecdotal evidence to illustrate the counter-intuitive traps.

-<color red>---</color>+About the authors:
-This wiki is a companion for the upcoming Yahoo!Press/O'Reilly Media book: //Building Web 2.0 Reputation Systems// written by F. Randall "Randy" Farmer and Bryce Glass.+F. Randall “Randy” Farmer has been creating online community systems for more than 30 years. He helped to invent many of the basic structures for both virtual worlds and social software.
-[[chapter1|Reputations Systems]] are becoming increasingly critical to the web in general as people and businesses need to sort through the unprecedented volumes of user generated content produced globally every second of every day. We thought it needed a book to help establish a grammar for thinking about and designing these crucial systems. To date, this topic hasn't been covered in book form, with bits and pieces all spread around, mostly as corporate anecdotes or academic research papers+Bryce Glass is a principal interaction designer for Manta Media, Inc. Over the past 13 years, he’s worked on social and community products for some of the web’s best-known brands (Netscape, America Online and Yahoo!)

-Since this is an attempt to build a //new// shared model for describing reputation systems, it seems logical that this book should be written in the //[[http://communicationnation.blogspot.com/2008/08/unbook.html|un-book]]// style - with the text available for peer scrutiny and feedback incrementally, as it is written.  +Basic understanding of application logic is recommended, along with experience in creating web content.
