We’re very excited to announce that Leah Busque will be joining Tim Ferriss, Jane Pratt, Peter Thiel, and other impressive thought leaders as a featured speaker for SXSW Interactive 2013. Leah’s talk — “Reputation as a Currency: Is the Resume Extinct?” — will center around the role that trust mechanisms such as ratings and reviews have played in the evolution of online transactions. She’ll discuss how social capital, which is fundamentally changing the way we think about markets, power, online connections, and personal identity, is replacing the credit score in our new digital society.
