  • Deborah, Beth, Et al. I've read Beth's post, as well and Nancy and Jim's posts; all of it in the context of having watched the FISA hearings on CSPAN-2 today. I can understand why others are leary of Spock or don't want to be involved. However, I remain cautiously optimistic and offer my responses on a new blog post: http://www.orient-lodge.com/node/2670 I look forward to hearing other people's reactions. Aldon

  • Dear ISF Colleagues, While we're on the topic of Spock, I also recommend Nancy White's reflections: She's been querying trusted colleagues directly about why they joined Spock, and reports...

I just received a strongly worded message from Beth Kanter, who invited me to join Spock a few days ago, and now regrets experimenting with it.* Please be sure to check out the comments about Spock on her blog: Trust...

  • I'm not crazy about Spock. It disturbs me that the only options are "this is relevant" or "this is not relevant" in responding to a tag...to approach a new campaign? Can I show you a gruesome hack and trust that you won't add "gruesome hacker" to my Spock tags? Meanwhile, there are a lot of people who I trust dearly. They help me navigate tough social pickles. They...

  • I've been playing with Spock a bit over the past day or two, and I've put my blog post up about in on Orient Lodge http://www.orient-lodge...anything is possible, and the question is, are you going to do it, or is someone else going to do it to you. Spock provides a better tool for managing reputation than other tools that I've seen so far. For me it is this crowdsourcing...

  • -----original message----- >>Spock does seem interesting in that it uses "trust" rather than "friend" or "connection" as the metaphor for its social graph. This might...actually make it more useful - I imagine people are much less likely to put people they don't really know in their "trust" network on Spock, whereas there is a real range of opinion about how well you need to know someone to get to be their "friend" on facebook.>> Dear...
