I wrote an article on my main blog yestery about how influential business thinkers are rated and created. The "gist" of the article was the fact that the Wall Street Journal had compiled a list of influential business thinkers and relied on Google to do it, but didn't really take into account how search engines work (or why people search on an engine)
In comparison to ActiveRain, I've been here since fairly early on and have watched some gurus "rise and fall" along the way.
On ActiveRain- how does everyone feel the ranking system is working? Do you know of the ways people have abused and manipulated it? Do you care?
Are there better ways for defining thought leaders on ActiveRain beyond points?
Should community members be able to vote other members up or down?
Are there thought leaders here that don't receive honorable mention?
