Editors from Quoto.com attempt to remedy the caveats of other quote sites, of which misattribution is the most glaring.
Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
Quoto.com, an online repository of quotable quotes recently opened its cyber doors to the online community. Brainchild of Chief Editor Jason Bacchetta, Quoto.com is “a breath of fresh air” in a niche dominated by a handful of indistinguishable websites.
According to founder Bacchetta, Quoto.com exists to give its users “a daily dose of inspiration.” Himself an ardent fan of these snippets of wisdom, Bacchetta hopes the uniquely uplifting power of inspirational quotes will instill positivity and optimism in the site’s visitors.
According to its editors, the Quoto.com is designed for, and caters to, the more discerning users. Rather than simply compile quotes from multiple sources around the web, Quoto.com delves deeper. With a team of experienced editors, the site presents its users with relevant historical context, allowing readers to appreciate the spirit or essence behind the quote.
Quoto.com stands out, and for many reasons. Those involved with the site contend that the core idea is to remedy many of the caveats of other quote sites, of which misattribution is the most glaring.
What compounds the problem is that even authoritative figures are often vulnerable to the problem of inaccurate quotes and improper attributions. For instance, when the author of a research paper or journalistic article inserts an inaccurate quote from a website, the inaccuracy is legitimized just because it’s published on a reputable platform. It is not difficult to see how easily inaccurate quotations are propagated and become “real.”
Quoto.com, like most other quote sites, encourages guest contributions. Unlike most others, however, it checks each and every submission for accuracy and proper attribution. What makes the site truly unique is its appreciation of the fact that a vastly open environment like the Internet will always leave room for inaccuracy, and it is up to the guardians of each site to maintain and uphold quality.
Given its somewhat serious mission, the site does have a sense of humor. Founder Bacchetta irreverently sums up the plight of quote sites with a Jerry Seinfeld quote: “You might be interested in this book I’ve compiled from the Internet. It’s a book of quotations attributed to the wrong people."
