The best stuff in the world

June 9, 2006

So, here is the million dollar question for you: what is the best stuff in the word? I know that the response is likely to vary from individual to individual but I’ll just skip all the philosophical jargons by sparing you quotes like that and admit that no one can answer that very question without being biased by distinctive perspective, let alone me. So, yeah, I can’t tell you what the best stuff in the world is, but what I can do is direct you to a place, a place or rather a service called, The Best Stuff in the World (lets just call it TBSW for convenience). So basically what this site does is that it allows users to declare whatever they feel as the best stuff out there, which can be anything and everything starting from a certain computer to a certain drink or food. TBSW lets you to say what you feel is the best in any category, it also allows you to comment, and even declare if you feel there is something better then what someone feels is best.

It might seem like a stupid concept (seemed to me), but TBSW actually does a pretty good job at being a mix of social networking and voting with wiki style editing. To get started you are required to register by creating an account with all the profile and stuff. Then simply fire up and start browsing through stuff which people feel is the best of the best by browsing through the cloud on the main page or by viewing stuff added to specific categories. If you pick a category you’ll see what other people think as the best stuff. For instance if you pick the category “The Best News Website”, you’ll see that users have submitted names such as Digg, Newsvine, BBC News, Popurls, and more. When you select one, you will be directed to a page that includes a screenshot, description, and comments from users. Next to the screenshot of the “best thing,” with a statistic of the total number of people agreeing with it being the best. All of your activity is then logged in your profile where users can learn more about you and find stuff that you like best.

The main page will also allow you to post whatever you think is best through a field that you can fill with anything that you feel is best. Simply enter anything at all and it will do one of two things: Direct you to a page to add the best stuff along with a description and screenshot; Direct you to a page where you can vote for the stuff if it already exists. Try it, type in anything at all that you like.

The Best Stuff in the World is a fun service, what is so nifty about the whole concept is that it is in a way like a mini review site for just about anything. I can go to the category, “Best Notebook Computer,” and find what computer people like most and read comments about each of them. I can see a list of stuff that others feel are better and I can find people that use the Notebook and comment on their profile asking about it. Looking for a new book to read? Find what author people like best and try reading one of the authors books. As you can see, TBSW is not only a fun service where you can say what you like, it’s also a service where you can learn what is the best. Have fun!
