I finally met Bambi for the first time today at her studios. We go back about 12 years when she was a reporter at MarketWatch and I was with DoubleClick - but we had never met. Bambi asked me some great interview questions...much fun.

FindTheBest is an objective, socially curated, comparison engine that allows you to choose a topic from hundreds of Comparisons, tailor your search based on dozens of key filters and select the best option based on the factors important to you. Ultimately, FindTheBest allows you to make faster and more informed decisions by allowing you to easily compare all the available options.
You'll find many other comparison sites that may seem similar to FindTheBest. You may have used shopwiki.com to find and compare specific products like HDTVs, or kayak.com to find and compare airline tickets. These sites, however, are different than FindTheBest in two major ways. First, while many of these sites only allow you to search and compare within a narrow range of products or services, FindTheBest allows you to search and compare a wide range of topics from ski resorts to celebrities. Second, many comparison sites are simply driven by affiliate marketing deals "recommending" products or services which pay them the highest referral fees. FindTheBest is unique in that it provides both a broad range of topics to search through as well as an unbiased database free from any hidden advertising. While we may look to advertisers to be able to keep our search free, any advertisements on our site will be clearly marked and targeted to your search.
FindTheBest is organized into nine broad categories ranging from Arts & Entertainment to Sports & Recreation. Each category includes dozens of Comparisons-from Aquariums and Nutrition Charts to Surf Spots and Zoos. Each Comparison consists of a variety of related listings, and each listing can be sorted through numerous key filters.
FindTheBest will soon become a collaborative knowledge base allowing you to eventually contribute information by providing and editing your own listings, and posting reviews and ratings. In this way, FindTheBest will ultimately become a place for you to find and share information as well as add your voice to the community.
