web2.0 sites' target
should be to offer each visitor
a stream with all interesting content
(most interesting first)

they need to track (forever) what content
each visitor has already seen

they need to model visitor tastes/preferences
to anticipate content-ratings
matching visitors with similar tastes

discovering the dimensions of taste
identifying content-prototypes
that can quickly map visitor preferences

ideally recognising five ranks:
where Fs offend you
Ds turn you off
As you want to share

with an 'emulate' mode
when you find a visitor with similar tastes
that lets you zip thru their As and Bs
inheriting their ratings as default
