Web Sites Self Organize
from the you-just-noticed-this? dept
As always, the NY Times is a little behind the times, but they still wrote a pretty good article about self organizing websites where people rate stuff to give it prominence. Not surprisingly they talk about Slashdot and its whole moderation system. They also talk about the massively overhyped Plastic and a few others including Everything2, TheVines, and ThemeStream. Of course, they didn’t mention Kuro5hin.org, which I still think does a pretty good job of handling “self-organizing”.
