Judge the judges

Flickr users critique a photo by Henri Cartier-Bresson:
so small
so blurry
to better show a sense of movement SOMETHING has to be in sharp focus
A Yahoo Answers user posts the first page of Late David Foster Wallace's doorstopper "Infinite Jest". The work of one of the seminal writers of recent times doesn't impress any user. 
No discernible voice/tone in this writing. Rambling descriptions. I, frankly, do not care where each and every person is seated. I don't care what shoe you're wearing. If you take out all the unnecessary details, you'd be left with about seven words.
Idea: Put up first pages of 100 most influential books online and see what users say.

Thanks to Jason Kottke
