The wonderful wankometer

In the ongoing war against pomposity and bullshit, some anonymous people at offer the wankometer as a service. This web site lets site authors discover the amount of management wank in their prose or on their sites.

My blog scores between two & three, which is classed as considerable. I’m not sure if I should be proud, its lower than many but higher than Jonathan’s which scores 1.52 and is classed as low.

I’ve considered putting the score against each article in my blog as an alternative to Technorati that I can’t get to work. Although the logo might be interesting and of questionable taste.

  1. Was this my first experience of text/word scoring? I came across word scoring in 2014 as part of a look at twitter and stock sentiment tracking and at using the fire hose to predict the general election or at least sentiment.
