Employee Engagement and Whuffie

Can you fuse employee engagement and Whuffie?

Here is the Wikipedia explantion of Whuffie:

Whuffie is the ephemeral, reputation-based currency of Cory Doctorow’s science fiction novel, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. This book describes a post-scarcity economy: All the necessities (and most of the luxuries) of life are free for the taking. A person’s current Whuffie is instantly viewable to anyone, as everybody has a brain-implant giving them an interface with the Net. The term has since seen some adoption as a synonym for social capital, including its use in the title of the Tara Hunt book The Whuffie Factor.

Tara Hunt, from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan,  has created an informative  slide presentation for a 3-hour Whuffie Workshop she gave to Best Buy. Here is an image of one of the key slides.
