On the 15th of November 2012, we soft launched Listnerd.com. The launch marks the beginning of an exciting journey for the team behind the site.
We want to revolutionize the world of lists. Lists haven’t changed in decades. They’re not interactive and not social. Yet people still love lists – we all do. They help us organize all the clutter around us. And when they work, they help us separate the good stuff from the bad.
Listnerd is a new take on lists; social, collaborative and interactive lists about, well, anything really. Unlike most other rating websites, Listnerd isn’t confined to just hotels, restaurants and bars; we dig much deeper than that. We want to crowdsource everything – from the latest trends in fashion, music, movies, the best beers or even companies.
Listnerd allows anybody to create a list about anything. The author and main curator of the list determines an overall theme for the list, and then surrenders the list into public domain. The original author only retains partial control of the list – by for example deciding which new items are allowed on the list. Other than that, the list and the rankings of each item on it belongs to the crowd.
We want to make the entire list-creation process social – so that anybody can contribute and share information. It’s a democratic approach to list making.
We hope you’ll join us on our journey and invite you to stay up to date with the latest happenings, right here on our blog.
Eric, Jesper and the rest of the team behind Listnerd.com
