What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
In 2010, Rocky and Rambo star Sylvester Stallone spearheaded an unabashedly retro motion picture project called The Expendables. Hearkening back to Stallone’s own heyday of double-barreled
excitement and fist-flying thrills and spills, the cast he assembled for the project read as a bit of a Who’s Who? of beloved 80s and 90s actioners. The flick to the surprise of some was a big hit, and so accordingly a sequel is due to be released on August 17.
We here at the PeekScore blog are not equipped to compare body mass, body counts, ass-kickingness, or box office totals. But what we can, nay must, do is compare how these burly silver screen legends (and their female co-star) compare in terms of their impacts here on the web (their “digital footprints,” if you will, a concept you can find explained in brief above or more in depth by clicking through here).
The surprise victor in this battle royale rather neatly illustrates well what the PeekScore establishes first and foremost. Is he the biggest star on the list? Not likely. Is he the best known? What, compared to the former governor of California? Probably not. But, is his name mentioned on the internet constantly and for many, many years now due to his having been the subject of one of one of the all-time best known and oft repeated memes? Well, of course, yes. And as a result, you’d be hard-pressed to think of many whose ongoing prominence is more tied in with their presence specifically on the Web.
