Reputationville: A World Where The Work Finds You

the reputation economyImagine living in a world where, just like an Uber driver is waiting for you when you need it, the work finds you. To a certain degree, we’re already living in a world where reputation matters. But let’s take it a step further and consider other factors beyond who you know and what you know; what obstacles are standing in the way?

This episode was inspired by Gizmodo’s MeanWhileInTheFuture Reputationville episode where in that future everything you do is rated by a combination of humans and machines; including your driving, work and personality.

The Reputation Economy is already here, and they way we’ll get work will change in a few years time.
