I’m working on establishing a network called the Quantified Prestige Development Network with the purpose of establishing a reputation economy based on the Quantified Prestige system.
At this early stage there are some foundational questions which concern this network. One of the is the name of the network. The name Quantified Prestige Development Network has the following components which may or may not be changed:
- Quantified Prestige: This is to say focus lies on the Quantified Prestige system for developing a reputation economy. Alternatively, the network could be called “Reputation Economy Development Network” which would make it more descriptive and easier to understand what it’s about. But the focus on Quantified Prestigew which would be quite important at this stage, might be lost.
- Development: At the moment we don’t have a real reputation economy, so we first have to develop it. This is very important and central. The question is whether development also includes promotion of QP and possibly other reputation economy systems. And also whether it includes research on QP. So, it might be possible to leave out this word, even though it’s of central importance at this stage. So, an alternative might be: “Quantified Prestige Network” (though that name is currently reserved for the implementation of a real network of Quantified Prestige nodes) or “Reputation Economy Network”. Or we might go in the other direction and call it “Quantified Prestige Research and Development Network” or something like that.
- Network: This should be the least controversial part of the name. What I want is a real decentralized global network, not a central organization or company which tries to control the whole reputation economy, which would probably backfire anyway.
Also, I want to stick with a descriptive name at least for the beginning, because filling some less descriptive name with meaning would imply serious additional work.
Edit: During a short biking tour I had the idea to call it “Reputation Economy Promotion, Development and Exploration Network” or “REPDEN”. I think that’s descriptive and stylish What do you think?
