For some reason, human beings are obsessed with lists. We like to have things ranked and displayed for our reading pleasure. Just look at Digg. Some of the most popular submissions are lists, and it doesn’t mater if they’re detailing the best of something, the worst of something, or anything else for that matter. If we see a list, we’ll read it even if we don’t care about the subject. Instead of just reading lists, you can also create and rank them over at Onzilist.
Usually lists focus on the top ten items, but Onzilist gives you eleven entries for any given topic. Apparently that extra one really makes a difference. Who knew? Anyway, you’ll find a number of lists that have already been created, and you can rank them however you’d like. By enabling people to reorder lists that have already been created, Onzilist can show us a global average of the data instead of just one person’s viewpoint of how the list should be organized. This is helpful for research because the way other people rank certain lists may surprise you.
