I am proposing a measure called Venkee (pronounced When Key) to indicate the tipping point of interest of a book, music, play, movie or TV show and online posts.
Venkee is the point in which the art impressed you and made you to continue through rest of the performance. In other words it is the point till which you are evaluating and not sure you like it or not.
- For books it will the page number
- For movies & TV shows it will be the minute
- For music it will be the seconds and
- For online posts (blogs) it will be the word number
Venkee numbers are always integers (no decimal points) and generally they are positive. Lower the number, it is an indication of the popularity of the artwork; the author/creator of the art has impressed the audience early enough to make an impact.
There can be negative Venkee number which is the turn off point. Negative Venkee is the point at which the artwork made you unlike it. It is the page at which you decided to put down the book or the minute stopped the movie.
What do you think of Venkee’s?. Post it in comments below or in the Facebook page. I wish to collect Venkee numbers of your favorite (unfavorite) books and movies. Let the venkees flow….
