Don’t just stand there, list something ! August 30, 2007

I like lists. Top 10 lists. Top 20, 100, I like them, at least for their at most trivial value, besides accessibility and the mnemonic value if you will.

And the kind of lists one makes says a lot about one’s obsessions. Here is an example – “list of literary works most often left behind in hotel rooms.” In Britain that is. ( Link via MR)

Then there are of course the immensely useful Amazon’s Listmania, where people put together a list of products based on some theme. There of course is Amazon’s own rating that rates these lists and calls it the list of top lists.

I am obviously a fan of Tyler Cowen’s list of favorite things. Here is one of my favorites among his list of favorites.

And of course, there is Guy Kawasaki who almost always talks in terms of lists.
