Jim McCoy, Co-founder, Hivecache
Roger Dingledine, Security Philosopher, The Free Haven Project
Bryce Wilcox-O'Hearn, Software Engineer, zooko.com

Track: Adaptive
Date: Tuesday, May 14
Time: 2:00pm - 2:45pm
Location: Winchester

This session outlines the history of reputation including those that use reputations to manage resources and to promote efficient self-organization within the networks. The discussion includes why reputation systems are an ideal tool for distributed system designers who need decentralized network management that remains responsive to changes in a dynamic operating environment. Finally, there is an exploration of the practical details of design and implementating reputation systems and how it is possible to use simple mechanisms to create adaptive emergent behavior within distributed networks.
