♨ Food News is a website to publish and discuss links about healthy sustainable food, ranked by readers. It uses Mozilla Persona for authentication and no passwords are transmitted to or saved on the food.hypertexthero.com server.1 The code is open source.
Links on the homepage are ranked using a time-scaled ranking algorithm. This means that both the time since a link was published (its age) and the amount of up-votes a link has received (its popularity) affect a link’s rating, so fresh, interesting links should be present on the homepage every day, especially if the site becomes popular.
Hypertexthero has moved to a new server on Webfaction and took the opportunity to update the site design.
