Earlier this week, Metacritic was purchased by Cnet. Big buyouts of my favorite sites always make me nervous, but I thnk Metacritic could do a lot with more resources behind them.

I have one big idea I'd love to see them implement. First, allow users to log in so they can keep track of their own reviews. This way they can share their thoughts with others in a coherent fashion and will give the site a stronger community aspect. Second, recommend professional and amateur reviewers based on my likes and dislikes. I always forget which writers share my tastes in music and film, so it'd be nice to have an algorithm remind me every now and again.

This would get me to come back to the site once a day or so. Come on Metacritic, do it!
