Review Aggregation
have one big idea I'd love to see them implement. First, allow users to log in so they can keep track of their own reviews.
This way they can share their thoughts with others in a coherent fashion and will give the site a stronger community aspect.
Second, recommend professional and amateur reviewers based on my likes and dislikes. I always forget which writers share
my tastes in music and film, so it'd be nice to have an algorithm remind me every now and again.,1874,2382,00.asp
