Find me Consensus 14 Comments

I was just browsing the web, reading the reviews of customers who bought a certain products on Amazon; scanning to see if a book is popular or lame.

I found that half the people think that the author is a pretentious bastard who can’t write for shit and then other half either thought the book was a page turner interesting even if the author’s writing style was amateurish or that the book is funny and well written in a straight unpretentious manner.

Interestingly enough I started write posts for bernos in one sitting or in two.  Sometimes I start and save the file and come back to it another time, in most cases the next day or 2 days after.

In this case however, as you may have realized I have disappeared for a while. A while enough that I wrote the first two paragraphs of this post over a month ago; beginning of August or so. Since then I have not only finished the book I was review the reviews of, but also finished reading or listening to audio book of two additional books.

The point I wanted to make at the time was, if I remember correctly that I wished people generally agreed more about everything. The fact is that people who read or see or enjoy a certain product see it from a different perspective. The best party could be the worst party ever depending on who hooked up that night. :)

The only consensus comes only after an over abundant set of reviews for whatever it is we are reviewing. I love reviews; when there are enough or better yet more than enough of them.

Some films on rotten tomatoes have 3 reviews and all 3 might say that the film is not rotten stupid. And this is not enough. You need 200 or so reviews before there is consensus.

The average of a small amount of people is not consensus. So my gut feeling is more of what I need to judge.

A few months ago, everyone that I talk to including family and friends suggested I do something. Althought I disagreed with the concept, everyone thought it was a good idea. Not even one single person agreed with my perspective of the situation.

It wasn’t a matter of life and death nor was it an extra ordinary venture but it was significant enough that I had to evaluate all aspects of the situation before I made a decision. My decision although was mine to make, but affected others, and thus had to carefully weight their thoughts.

It’s still early to judge the outcome fully but its looking more like I was right and they were all wrong.  All of them!

The point, consensus only comes after the number of feedback reaches an abundance of a minimum set.

    A different issue is that video gaming became one of the all-time biggest forms of excitement for people of all ages. Kids play video games, plus adults do, too. Your XBox 360 has become the favorite gaming systems for those who love to have a huge variety of activities available to them, and also who like to experiment with live with other people all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your opinions.
