WeChi was created by a Pittsburgh native (Donora,PA). It will launch on June 7.

WeChi is a new social networking ‘game’ that gauges a person’s mood based on feedback from all of their social media outlets. Their mood is conveyed via a descriptive icon, that their networked friends can see. If a person’s mood is down, and their network rallies to their support, then everyone’s Chi goes up. Start gaining enough Chi, and you can exchange it for credits toward donations to charitable causes. Get too much Chi, and WeChi algorithms become suspicious and adjust your score accordingly.

WeChi is an example of a “Fourth Sector” organization: for-benefit businesses, created for the public good. Here is more about WeChi and some links to articles about the Fourth Sector, which is interesting in itself:
