We hosted a small, invitation only event to unveil the data at RateItAll's headquarters.
Here is the presentation from that event - RIA old timers will likely get a kick out of the RateItAll timeline on one of the slides:
Automatt snapped from the show:
RateItAll's Cimbrel30, who is from Spain, arranged for Tapas to be brought in. They were delicious.
- Gilbert Arenas' suspension (note: don't mess with David Stern)
- Google's new "superphone," the Nexus One
- Chris Dodd's planned retirement

It's time to crank up those 2010 lists before other people beat you to the punch.
I'm returning with my two mainstays:
Top News Stories of 2010
Top Sports Stories of 2010
And for gosh sake, can somebody please help me with 3 more French beers? It's embarrassing having a list of Top Ten French Beers with only seven beers on it.
(sort of an odd related content selection below, but I'm going to run with it)
What am I saying?
Soldier on - the site will be functional, if sluggish.
The site went through a lot of changes. Despite how hard it is to adapt to a new site, just about everybody met the changes head on, gave great feedback, bore with us as we worked out the kinks, and went on to master new and improved V3 version of the site.
For those of us regulars that are on the site every day sounding off about movies, drinks, politics, and of course pet food, more people than ever read our reviews. More than 15M people read RateItAll reviews in 2009, and we hope to bump that number up significantly in 2010. Click through to read our year end press release.
We promise not to make any huge changes to the site this year, but also promise to keep tweaking away and making the site tighter, faster, and easier to use than ever. Please, keep your feedback coming.
Thanks again for all of your support, and I hope each and every one of you has a fantastic 2010 (complete with plenty of reviews!).
