I love writing these weekly updates. I know it’s only been two weeks. But I love the process of creating a new post as soon as I publish this week’s post. Then I update it with points as and when I feel like it throughout the week. On Friday, I click publish. These weekly posts are stealing from Twitter which is a good thing in general :)

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.
