I've given the aggregator a concept of whuffie. I can give any item that has been aggregated a thumbs up or thumbs down, increasing or decreasing the item and site's wuffie. I sort the sites out as I display them by their whuffie. It is a simplistic way of keeping the sites I'm interested in at the top of the list. I'd like to wire in a Bayesian classifier too, and see if that helps me get the items I like to the top. [John Beimler]
How strange. I posted a screen shot of TouchGraph running on .NET in response to a post by Scott Hanselman about .NET Purity. He commented on that post so I visited his site again. In the process I reread an unrelated post of his. That's when I saw this:
I'm envisioning a full-screen, small-font, very dense RSS aggregration workspace (much more dense than Outlook Today) perhaps ala The Brain...I'll need hunt around and perhaps write this if I can't find it...maybe I can pull from Danny Ayer's IdeaGraph? [Scott Hanselman]
No wonder he thought my TouchGraph screen shot was cool.
P.S. I'm seriously considering a .NET port of TouchGraph. If you are interested let me know.12:52:28 AM
