Agree, it's the ideas and the collective thinking that counts.

We are certainly a number of people with strong egos at the list but 
most of the time we manage to control our egos and focus on ideas. 
Having some kind of individ based "popularity" measurements, wouldn't 
affect that balance in any positive way IMO.

A better system for keeping track of ideas (RTs) would be really useful. 
Maybe RTs could be classified into ideas by folksomy. And some kind of 
reader evaluation of the mails in the threads would make it easier to 
find the mails that give good explanation of the involved ideas. For 
ideas that having been around for along time like "real blocks" it is 
very hard to find out what we have discussed by searching the archives 
and Googling is seldom specific enough.
