I received an email from a NYC psychiatrist who has developed a website to provide professional referrals based on peer ranking of a sort. The site relies on what he describes as a google-like algorithim to manage search results.
From PeerPlug FAQ:
"PeerPlug is a service that enables skilled professionals of any kind to recommend and rank peers in their profession. The rankings are then used to generate lists of skilled professionals that users can search by specialty, location and other criteria."
So far there are only a few professionals listed, making it difficult to generate traffic and new listings. I don't have any great thoughts about the site one way or the other, but I appreciate that the site owner contacted me and explained what he is doing without trying to spam my site.
So, I thought I'd give 'em a link.
