Ben Cohen and I have our 2012 Candy Hierarchy up at Boing Boing today. And in my opinion, it’s a shining testament to the power of peer review, except of course…
We, the authors, have greatly profited from this peer community feedback. That is to say, we almost got rich — the Hierarchy was optioned by a few Hollywood types and months were spent in writers’ rooms hammering out a pilot for NBC, before having the whole thing axed once it became clear NBC was not a thing anymore. But we got to keep the money. And we bought candy with it. And now here we are. So on with it already.
Anyway, see and read the full Candy Hiearchy paper here, and weigh in with ALL THE PASSION you can muster (unless you’re passionate about whoppers – because if so, that too bad – nothing will change our opinion there).
