Evan wants to implement something like the Whuffie system for conferences. "Like a little LED that glows red if you're red-hot, blue if you're nobody, green if you're the cool-kid dark-horse outsider. I'm not sure how the algorithm would work -- I'm thinking some kind of RFID transponder with other people's head movements counting as a vote gesture."
Or how about using Bluetooth to log people's movements at the conference and train a Bayesian filter on the log of where people go? Purposeful striding from speaker lounge to podium area: good. Sitting around: bad. Proximity to 1337 people: good.
