Wanted: Bayesianly faceted weblog

· Nanopublishing

Categories and the rest of the presentation and grouping issues that come up with heavy microcontent streams are a metacrap problem. It’s (always) too complicated. Let the computer figure out when I’m jotting in my writer’s journal, when I’m commenting on something I experienced, when I’m discussing work or politics or my new book or baseball or the dsm-iv.
And death to categories! those inadequate cave-crayon drawings of taxonomy and metadata. The whole problem with that paradigm is that it’s always static at the next level up. You have to engineer flow into the sorting and presentation. You outgrow every fixed system, no matter how good in the snapshot moment.
I wants me my Bayesian-filter generated facets.
Let’s work on a plugin for that in Movable Type 3.
Someone ping Lazyweb.
