Made some delicious raisin bread today. Thought about going to the cookbook, then decided to go to allrecipes.com. Picked this recipe because of its 168 recommendations and 4-and-a-half-star rating. With real reviews from real people, why would I ever just go to the cookbook?

Along the same lines, I’ve been checking out Digg.com recently. The site allows readers to rate the news based on their own criteria.

Both sites make a lot of sense and help take the traditional gatekeepers out of the way.

I seriously recommend the cinnamon bread. Delicious.
