Want a fun game to play with your friends when you’ve got a few minutes to waste? Try out Webhotornot – see how good your eye for sites compares with everyone else’s. You might even stumble upon an interesting site that you didn’t know about but others have rated highly, too!
How did it come to exist? When I was in Madrid visiting my friend and investor Martin Varsavsky late last year, we had a fun time brainstorming ideas to help find and rate interesting web sites, and we came up with the idea. Who knows, perhaps the ratings might even be useful if people start using the site – sort of a “prediction market” for web sites. Most of all, we just wanted to create a simple site that was fast-loading and fun to use. We both love Hotornot, so we figured we’d do an homage.
Who knows where it’ll go, it is a quick hack that Martin’s team pulled together quickly with our direction. Go check it out – and if you’ve got a hot site that you want to add, you can submit the site as well! Martin blogs about it as well.
