Submission + - Jyte: The Numbers Agree With Me

devv_null writes: "Jyte is a new social-networking site supporting the new OpenID framework that centers around users making claims about anything. Then users can vote on whether they agree with the claim or not, as well as make comments on the claim. Users may also give "cred", points that are awarded to a claimant based on whatever expertise he or she has demonstrated in posting the claim. The kinds of claims are all over the map, from programming language holy wars to assertions about vegetarians to the proper usage of the word "anal". In addition to serving as an unabashed push of OpenID, Jyte is especially noteworthy in that it encourages users to use critical thinking, has some use for collecting polling data and might even help you write your term paper."
