I’ve just been having a bit of fun with this… The Blog Readability Test. What level of education is required to understand your blog? – as seen on David Cushman’s site.
Apparently you require a “high school” education to read this blog.
I haven’t dug around to see what, if any, algorithm is being used to calculate readability.
Rather worryingly when I put http://news.bbc.co.uk in it came back saying you needed to have a college postgrad education to read it, and to be able to read www.google.com you need to be a Genius. Something fishy going on there methinks.
