    Toby,

    Thanks for the link to my blog post.

    To be honest, I don’t really think that IMDb’s Starmeter is evidence for the gamification of an entire industry. At most, it’s one way to have an actual data point on how many seats in a movie theatre an actor might fill. In the entertainment business (especially at the top), a lot of why an actor gets hired is how big their audience is…the starmeter is one way to measure that.

    At the end of the day, however, it is the audience–not the measurement of such–that really makes the difference.

    Warm Regards,
    Ben

    Wait, how am I supposed to get lots of hits on my IMDB page? I hire an automatic server to do it? Brilliant!!

    However, how are broke actors supposed to pay for this? Is it expensive?

    Is the computer’s name HAL?
