How much of that, though, is due to his illegitimate son and Woody Allen's psycho ex?

Self-importance and a vicious temper masked by a veneer of phony, sleazy "sophistication" that only people who don't really grasp the concept would fall for?

Yup, that's western civilization!

This is a marketing scheme to drum up interest in advance of Scorcese's Frank Sinatra film.

So the original Pagerank algorithm had Linnaeus on top.  The researchers didn't like that, so they changed the methodology until they got an answer they wanted.

At least the Newser article was candid about the methodology.

Not surprising.  You used to be able to determine your social importance by how many steps removed you were from shaking hands with the guy.

The amount of links on your Wikipedia page makes you important?

Im pretty sure important was not the word they were looking for.

Frank Sinatra's music doesn't even suck. It is unremarkable.

Next week, it will be an article about the least important person in the world, according to Wikipedia.

Everyone who doesn't have their own Wikipedia page will be tied for first.

Only because it set a standard.  It's unremarkable because it's the definitive sound of its generation.

His music is like the soundtrack to a vasectomy.

Sinatra didn't sing. He talked in metre, occasionally changing the pitch.

So,
Most page links = Most important

Huh.

I hope that this "research" wasn't paid for with tax dollars.

Well it's not unusual to be loved by everyone.
