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.
With this here PeekScore blog entry, we are pitting a group of journos against one another in a contest worthy of those they make their own respective breads and butters writing and/or broadcasting about. These sports journalists – currently the most prominent on the World Wide Web – are now virtual athletes in the arena of digital footprints (a concept explained in brief in the disclaimer above, and more in depth by clicking through here). Yes, the analogy is clumsy and imperfect, but you’ve got to put something in these intro paragraphs.
The once Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (and its affiliated endeavors), or ESPN as it’s now exclusively known, perhaps as was likely dominates the list. But all in all, we do think this is a surprising group, and the results were surely different than we’d anticipated.
What are your thoughts? Who would you like to have seen on the list? Let us know in the comments.
