We prepare lists of all manner of facts and things and make them votable and commentable. This lets users create dynamic rankings that change and reflect changing trends and opinions over time.
There will be no "wacky lists" involving celebrities or present events that exist purely for fleeting enjoyment. ListVote lists only verifyable, lasting facts. Think "Wikipedia of Lists".
The ListVote web site is unpretentious and as simple as "List. Vote. Learn." or "Facts. Opinions. Engagement." In this simple and engaging manner, users create an opinion layer over the factual universe that is dynamic, always recent and zoomable over a variety of aspects, such as time, place, relevance, language and relations with other topics etc.

The list is the origin of culture. Wherever you look in cultural history, you will find lists. – Umberto Eco
In the current media environment, a list is perfectly designed for our brain. We are drawn to it intuitively, we process it more efficiently, and we retain it with little effort. - The New Yorker, December 2013
The list is the origin of culture. It’s part of the history of art and literature. What does culture want? To make infinity comprehensible… And how, as a human being, does one face infinity? How does one attempt to grasp the incomprehensible? Through lists… Umberto Eco
The list is the mark of a highly advanced, cultivated society because a list allows us to question the essential definitions. The essential definition is primitive compared with the list. Umberto Eco
I love lists. Always have. when I was 14, I wrote down every dirty word I knew on file cards and placed them in alphabetical order. I have a thing about about collections, and a list is a collection with purchase. (Wired Magazine, "Step One: Make a List", October 2012)
― Adam Savage
The list could surely go on, and there is nothing more wonderful than a list, instrument of wondrous hypotyposis.― Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose
