I’m sure some of you have heard me talk about TrenchMice – a project that has been underway for more than a year focused on reputation and rating. Well, TrenchMice is live as of last Friday.
The site is the brain child of John DeRosa, one of the founders of Singingfish and a good friend of mine. It’s meant to provide a forum and rating mechanism to really tease out the soft data associated with employers – the good and the less than optimal. To really achieve that goal, however, it needs people (you, hopefully) and their thoughts.
Take a second and take a look at the site, check it out, register for a free account, and maybe give some mad props to your favorite company or boss.
It’s also worth noting that the TrenchMice staff have a blog at http://www.cogitooptimus.com/, and today they posted up some thoughts on the site and privacy – always something of an issue with reputation. When I talked with John the other day, he said that more posts of different topics and ideas would be coming.
Update: And it’s all done with the Django web framework.
