Whuffie is the ephemeral, reputation-based currency of Cory Doctorow's science fiction novel, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. 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, and The Whuffie Bank site.
