I'm Too Sexy For Your Server...

Some things seem inevitable in hindsight. "Web Hot or Not" is one of those things that seems like an idea you should have come up with years ago.

Created by Technorati founder David Sifry, the site is about as barebones as they come - there isn't even an 'About' page yet. All you get is a screenshot of a site and below that a scale of 1 to 10 of how "hot" it is. If you've ever used the actual Hot or Not site before, it's exactly the same. Once you vote, you are taken to a new site's screenshot to vote on while the last one you just voted on has it's "official rating" updated in the upper left hand corner. Best of all, you don't have to register to vote (it's not even an option).

The best part of this site is going to no doubt eventually be the comments. I can't wait to hear the anonymous masses rip into the way sites look. Has anyone submitted MySpace yet?

Anyone can add any site simply by clicking the 'Add site' link and putting in the URL. It takes a bit of time for a screenshot to be gathered for that submitted site.


Since it was created by Sifry, one wonders if this is just an amusing way to make sport of things like AOL's homepage, or if it has some future tie-in with Technorati's prodigious ranking functions. Someone submit HotHardware. I don't have the nerve.
