New York is the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York Metropolitan Area, one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world. The city is referred to as New York City or the City of New York to distinguish it from the State of New York, of which it is a part. A global power city, New York exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment. The home of the United Nations Headquarters, New York is an important center for international diplomacy and has been described as the cultural capital of the world.

Readers want to say something specific, about something specific -- whether citing sources in a policy debate or reacting “LOL!” to a cat pic. That’s why forwarding-thinking sites like Medium, Quartz, and RapGenius are experimenting with inline comments.
But it’s more than just annotation. ReadrBoard enables understanding how different people and communities feel about the same content on the web. Our goal is to be THE tool people use to react to everything.
OK, that's ridiculous. But, we're passionate about making it simple for people to engage whatever grabs them in as simple a way possible. Since no annotation platform has really caught on outside of a single community, we think it's a smart place to start.
ReadrBoard is different from other approaches to annotation in two key ways.
First, reacting is simply easier than commenting. Sure, we let readers also leave a full, in-line comment if they want, but over 98% of people find a reaction does the trick. This means it's not only easy to say something... but it's really easy and fast to see what other people think.
Second, we enable responding to images and video, too!
Oh, and a third thing: we’re a platform. A free one. You can install ReadrBoard right now.
ReadrBoard’s getting used on 15% of pageviews for our partners -- and sometimes over 200% -- so we think hope we're starting to “catch on”. With your help, maybe we can make it the best annotation platform ever made.
Try it out, and give us your feedback. This a process, and we want you to be a part of it. With your help, we can make the web more dynamic, and more aware of how people think and feel about great content.
