A new social web application I’ve been playing with called “Plurk”:http://www.plurk.com/user/rox has a feature called _karma points_. You earn points by inviting people to join, posting messages, etc. In other words, you earn good karma by promoting their service. I find it irritating, and was discussing this with “David Beaudoin”:http://www.plurk.com/user/misterboh, and such was the inspiration for this episode. I find karma to be a concept that mis-places blame where none is due, induces guilt when consciousness is more useful, and confuses genuine feedback aka cause and effect from any given situation with shoulds and should nots. What do you think about karma?
Otherwise, Plurk has some nice features, including a graphical timeline and threaded conversations.
