The first person to invent such a system (and it’s probably already being worked on) will be a very rich person indeed.  A system where you can rate people after chance encounters in a bar, a club, or even in the supermarket. Not only will our forum profiles have karma ratings, not only will we have credit ratings — we’ll have personal star ratings. A divorce will lose you a few points, but donating money to a charity will bump you back up again.

What a scary thought. I wonder what rating I would have, out of 10, all things considered. Who would decide the weightings of each Pro and Con? Google perhaps…

Would you hack the database to elevate your rating to secure the new girlfriend?
