Re: The New Black List
I'm kind of excited by this. The Black List is a top-down list of recommended scripts. This is going to be the bottom-up list, and as long as Franklin's algorithm does its job it will hopefully force the cream to rise to the top, much like the original Black List.
It also puts a little more control in the hands of the writer to actively get in on the Black List's distribution channel. The caveat being you still need to be good enough to rank well and get the reads.
If my understanding is valid, why wouldn't this be a good thing? More great scripts getting into the hands of buyers.
