As you might have noticed, we’ve been having some uptime issues the past few days but fear not we’re currently in the process of moving to bigger, better, faster servers. A few of our sites are already up and running on the new servers with much improved speed and stability.
Also, we should have reviews of Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Cynthia McKinney up and live later today or early tomorrow. Thanks for sticking with us during the move and hopefully we won’t be down for too long during the move.
With the 2008 USA elections a little over a week away, OTIBR is proud to announce that this week we’ll review every presidential candidate and their vice-presidential nominee. Subscribe to our daily feed to make sure you catch every review!
You may have noticed that our past few reviews now use a rounded whole number for the final percentage score. Looking back on it, leaving the trailing digit was a case of too much information. We now round to the closest whole digit.
We here at OTIBR recognize Blog Action Day as a great way for the blogosphere to impact the world positively. Consider our review of Bikes not Bombs as our unofficial contribution for Blog Action Day 2008. We look at Bikes not Bombs as an ideal model for organizations to follow and as such have awarded Bikes not Bombs our highest score yet, a 93% with a perfect social benefit score. Bicycles are an ideal machine for fighting poverty, as they can be used for cheap transport and to generate renewable power.
