Mukund: So what has driven the growth? [in communities]
Jane: Primarily the need for people to connect and feel connected, and the growth of the Personal Social Index, which is widely accepted number replacing your Net Worth as the true indicator of your “wealth as a person”.
I responded privately that this was good fun but that someone needed to write a lame online survey that calculates people's PSI. Or better yet, do some funny algorithm with a search against their name in the context of social software.
No, this is not a new academic game show, but an interesting little web site that looks at in-degrees of other web sites. Polling some of the most popular link counting web sites, SocialMeter, gives a aggregate score of your in-links as seen from sites like Google, Technorati, Delicious, and others. [snip]
A game of "mine's bigger" will now ensue...
