Now that the old year is officially over, it is time to look back and acknowledge the very best posts on Singularity Weblog for 2012.
However, instead of writing a top 10 (or even worse – top 20) list, which research suggests people rarely read past the first 5, I intend to trick your brain by posting a bunch of Top 3 lists in several categories. In this way, hopefully, you will get to (re)discover a few interesting articles from the Singularity Weblog Archive that you may have otherwise missed.
So, the categories that I have in mind are: most popular Singularity 1 on 1 podcast episodes; best articles by Socrates; best guest posts; most popular news; most popular short sci fi films and documentaries; best reviews and, finally, some old but gold articles from years past.
The metrics used for the ranking are a combination of Google Analytics, social bookmarks, post comments, emails to Socrates, and my rather partial and subjective personal opinion ;- )
In short, the list is compiled on the basis of 90% direct or indirect reader input from you, and 10% editorial assessment from me. Also, please note that once a post has been listed in one category it is automatically disqualified from the other ones.
Hope you like it, but, even if you don’t, make sure you set me straight with your comments after the post!
