Hi

I have made what I call an eigenpoll, 
it is a script which try to extract expert knowledge 
from a group of people.
I think it works okay for books and I think it could be fun to test,
if it works for something like D features and suggestions as well.

If you think this could be a fun experiment 
or if you don't have anything better to do ;-)
 
Then go to 
http://all-technology.com/eigenpolls/dfeatures/
and add one/two good/bad feature/suggestion to the eigenpoll
and then rank them.

If enough people add and rank the features/suggestions we should get 
a clear picture of the good and bad side of D.

Here is something from the page, I hope it helps. An Eigenpoll is a new type of poll design to gather knowledge from a community. The problem with normal polls is that it find the most popular option. But if you are looking for a solution to a problem you don't want the most popular, what you want is the best solution to the problem. The course is that when not everybody have a equal amount of knowledge about a problem, then the one man one vote principle don't work. Eigenpolls try to solve this by letting the voters compare and rank the options, and then use a algorithm similar to Googles PageRank on the result.
