How to Create and Issue Open Badges

Badges are ubiquitous on the web. Any website that has some social component has badges. Audible gives you badges based on your listening. StackOverFlow gives you badges based on your participation etc. The problem with these badges is that they are not portable and not verifiable. For example, if you are on a site where you want to show or prove the badge that you have acquired on StackOverFlow, then it’s not possible. OpenBadge solves this.

Introducing IDVC Survey

Bangalore Darshinis are a class apart. They provide very affordable, clean, accessible food throughout the day. I have not seen this in many other cities. Most of the darshinis have the same or somewhat similar menu. They all have idli, vada (vada), dose(dosa), and coffee. So I figured to see if the city is affordable, the measure of these would be a good indicator, like an IDVC Index. Latte Index somewhat inspires me.
