STARmeter Ratings of People in Business

One of the subsidiaries of Amazon (AMZN) is [International Movie Database], which is the largest database in the world of motion pictures, television shows, actors and production crews. IMDb now has a feature called STARmeter, which are rankings of every person in IMDb and gives the popularity of the people in film and television productions, based on the actual behavior of millions of IMDb users.

Here is a sampling of some of the well known people in businesses along with a few celebs thrown in. What is shown is the percent change since last week. Note that Jim Cramer and Donald Trump were the only ones who were up on this list.

Warren Buffett -35%
Jim Cramer +65%
Bill Gates -13%
Steve Jobs -18%
Donald Trump +24%

Paris Hilton -57%
Nicole Ritchie -23%
Angelina Jolie -62%
Johnny Depp 0%

What is really, really unusual is that I am listed as being up 37%. [For those of you who know me, you can look it up.]
