    • I’m slightly freaked out that iKarma’s bad guy has sunglasses, darker skin, and a beard. The intro would have been more compelling if that had been the good guy.

      There are already tons of ways to rate a business or a service. I suppose the “iKarma” seal could have merit over time.

      It will be interesting to see if Verisign or the BBB — somebody who already has a reputation for trust management gets into this game.

    • I just started using ikarma.com. Fantastic. I have been listed on the site for one week. If you Google “lace yardage” you will come up with my listing under ikarma ON THE FIRST PAGE.

      I hope a lot of other web sites use this tool because the more that use it the more popular it will become.
