Wish I'd had this back at glorious BU

Caught my eye today - a Wired story on It seems that some academics are up in arms over this site, which permits students to "grade" their professors.

While I can certainly understand why SOME professors would have a problem with it, somebody please explain to me how this can possibly be a bad idea? "End user feedback" (which is what this is) works fantastically well for Amazon, BizRate, travel sites, hotels, and any number of other public services.

Maybe my uncle the poli-sci professor can help me with this.

Until then, however, I'm adding it to the list of things I wish had been available in my college days.
