Setting Favorite Bits

There is much to love about kottke’s new stellar.io, but I particularly like this bit from the about page -

Is this a game? Can I win?

As much as possible, scores and counts and numbers will not be part of the Stellar experience. There will eventually be a overall leaderboard of sorts but it will not emphasize numbers in the way that sites like Digg, Buzzfeed, or Tweetmeme do. The goal is for the interesting to bubble up naturally. If that results in slower growth and adoption, so be it. You cannot be the mayor of Twitter favoriting.
