so a significant amount of my time is spent finding "good sites". but i am doing something useful in slogging through this mess and finding the content, right? wrong. this would be useful if my "finding the content" lead to actual use of the content which was found, but i don't have time to read it all myself. I end up with extra information that i can't pass on; i now know a little bit about where the real good content is to be found, but there is certainly no point in my posting my findings to the web as it would contribute to the InformationOverload.
Wikis seem like a good solution to the MetaContentRecursionProblem, because WikiZens can consolidate redundant meta content. When you find "good content", it is actually useful to add that link to a Wiki because Wikis are immune to the MetaContentRecursionProblem. See LessRedundancy.
cool, man! may i ask what the project is?
i only looked at RATED.IT a little bit for now. the infrastructure they are setting up looks pretty general, so it could be very useful for this sort of stuff. i can't really see wanting to get emailed "GoldBall?"ed sites weekly, but there are other better ways of using the ratings information in their server. however, on very brief inspection it does seem that their system is a bit "cluttered".
also, i should point out that there is a similarity between (why numerical ratings are one way to attack the MetaContentRecursionProblem) and (RatingAsContent). In both cases, one has a number of different opinions which are being condensed into a single number (or two or three numbers). This saves the reader time because no matter how many opinions there were, they only have a set number of things to look at.
I don't understand this-
Is this about a lack of integration on the web, or..?
I don't quite get it.
