Today is May Day, we celebrate the social and economic achievements
of the labor movement ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Labor_movement ). In this important day, we wanted to announce our
project User Labor.
User Labor Markup Language (ULML), is an open data structure to
outline the metrics of user participation in social web services. Our
aim is to construct criteria and context for determining the value of
user labor for distribution. We believe that universality,
transparency, and accessibility of user labor metrics will ultimately
lead to more sustainable service cycles in social web.
Please see the examples on the User Labor website. Your feedback and
contribution is very important to improve this project.
