This is colossal, and they live up to it. As a Interdisciplinary Studies major, I straddle the science and art fields (I work in a dev bio lab doing image analysis and other technical chores as well as layout for posters and journal submissions.) I'm not much for modern art (and I consider anything after 1200 CE to be modern) but this site is exceptionally good. It's five stars all around, from layout, content, graphics, and yes the commercial side of it, everything is top notch. If you are a novice web or graphic designer, take a peek at their code - it's clean as clean comes. There is much to learn and enjoy with each visit.

Umm... Respectful Insolence and Uncertain Principles is OK but for the most part the the site is a ghost-town. (Sorry Abbie) Perhaps the best advice is to go into the archives and look at the posters that were there, Carl Zimmer, Jessica Palmer, Alex Wild, and so on and you understand the disappointment. You can find them and the others on other sites, but alas, the collection that was the 1927 NY Yankees is now the 1990 NY Yankees. Same name, but different results.

I have a rather unusual name so I just looked around without buying. Well it does have many of my previous abodes (I got around quite a bit) but it doesn't have my current one. (I've been here 4 years) Mind you, I fly under the radar, no facebook, no G+, minimal presence on LinkedIn, so it is to be somewhat expected. I looked up the spouse and her info is spotty too, but she's got a spotlight on her. All said, the accuracy is probably below 25% based on my anecdotal experience. (I looked for academic colleagues who also have high profiles)

Dear Bob,

I'm sorry to hear that our service did not meet your expectations. Spokeo showcases the power of information aggregation, as the data is gathered from a multitude of different sources, such as social networks, public records, phone listings, marketing surveys and more. We also organize the information so that it makes sense for you, as a user. However, machine aggregation has its limits. Since there is no human involved, the data is not verified and might not be accurate. Moreover, many sources do not refresh their data often. Our Terms of Use states clearly that we are a Search Engine, and do not create, maintain or modify any of the information you see. For this reason, we cannot guarantee full or accurate information for every name, phone number, email address or username you search for, as the results vary so much from person to person. Spokeo's data reflects that of the original sources, and our engineers are working hard on new algorithms to improve our data accuracy. I do apologize again for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Spokeo
