The Orbit Model

The Orbit team has developed a unique way to measure and display the engagement of community members. They call it Gravity, and in summary, it is a combination of members' Love (how active they are in the community) and their Reach (how much influence, followers, etc.) they have.
Below are two links to an illustrated walk through of the Orbit Model and the original GitHub doc that launched the project.
