RentAThing: “Reputation as currency”

From “Reputation as currency”  via Service Design Tools.

RentAThing is a tool for negotiation that provides additional information about the reputation of the parties involved and enables smoother transactions. Instead of silos of reputation, with various services, companies, and individuals developing isolated reputations,RentAThing provides a centralized means of managing and developing a single reputation: yourreputation.

As you go through life, you acquire a reputation. Do you pay your bills on time? How do you treat library books? Do you forget to return money you’ve borrowed? This reputation affects your ability to gain access to things and services. In the future, with spimes and smart objects as actors in a world of ubiquitous information, your objects could be rented to anyone at any time. Gaining access to those objects could be as simple as having a great reputation.
