Fred Wilson writes about Metacritic: “The Internet is a great place to check out what people think of music, movies, books, DVDs, videogames, restaurants, hotels, etc. The best place I’ve found to do this kind of work is metacritic. They take real reviews, apply a numerical value to them, and then aggregate them into a single score that they call a metascore. They also show a short summary of the reviews sorted by the metascores. It’s brilliant. You want to see the worst review. Just go read the review with the lowest metascore.”
Would to good to build in this kind of feature into Contentrix, the next-generation content platform that we are thinking about.
