Can someone provide an update on the status of Factrak, the on-line system for students to post anonymous comments about professors at Williams? In particular, now that the three creators (Jonathan Lovett ’04, Samir Thaker ’04 and Spencer Wong ’04) have graduated, who is actually maintaining the machinery?

I am impressed with Factrak and have found it useful for EphBlog. See here for the Factrak FAQ. I wish that people besides current students (perhaps at least alumni) could read and post, but that’s a topic for another day. It would be nice if they at least posted some summary statistics (e.g., number of professors with comments; number of new comments in the last 3 months) publically.

For those looking for background, this Record article provides an introduction. Factrak has clearly been a controversial topic over the years.
