Social scheduling

As a thought experiment.

There are always multiple users and limited resources. Users have work, which takes time and resources to complete.

The top resource users are visible to all.

A user can relinquish resources she is using.

A relinquished resource, either by work completing or by user action, is reassigned randomly.

How would this not work?

How would you refine it?

    Maybe social scheduling could make use of a crowdsourced, or distributed emergent notion of priority. Users could rate each other’s workloads. Highly rated workloads receive greater scheduling priority, and/or more resources.
