DocStoc Takes Its Long Shot Vision to the Public

first_imgRelated Posts Despite the valiant intentions of the site, there are almost zero comments or ratings on any of the documents. The company says it hopes that the precedent set by high quality docs at launch will facilitate community policing against low quality docs and spam. I question that; it might work, but the effort required to provide feedback on search results and document quality may be too high. marshall kirkpatrick The fact that the company is giving away an iPod touch to the people who upload the greatest quantity of documents each week doesn’t bode well for the quality of search results on the site. The words “Free iPod!” shouldn’t appear on a reputable company’s website, in my opinion. These sorts of sites face serious challenges, though. At public launch DocStoc has more than 12,000 documents already uploaded during the private beta. Most of those documents appear relatively well labeled and of high quality. Unfortunately, there is no reason to believe this trend will continue.
