That bit about TIVO was also on King of Queens, where Spence`s TIVO recorded figure skating and all kinds of musicals for him, very funny...

This is a great quote and it sounds like the service MINT has hit the same problem. “People are complicated,…If you have a system, they figure out how to game it. Machines never do.”

Jared, I'm not sure where of if Gillmor's line of gestures would be drawn...interesting question.

I'm not sure about Gillmor's Gestures, but #2 also reminds me of "Attention" or the artifacts of Attention. Or am I just missing the point? (BTW -- your comments preview function is something I hope to see replicated everywhere there's a comment box!)

Isn't #2 (User-generated content) what Gillmor keeps insisting are "Gestures"?

Wow, this post really hit the spot for me. I just wrote an article in Linkadelic Magazine earlier today about the problems of the web. Here is a small part:
What does it mean for the future? Wherever there is something wrong and an ongoing change process, good will eventually take place. I think that the web is still very much in its infancy, and that there is going to be a gradual change which will make the web a better place for its users. This may be likened to the collapse of a bad regime. Users will jump on new services which put the user in the center and empower the user by taking the preferences of the individual as the main consideration. Not the makers of the web sphere, not the "democratic" groups representing the users, but the user as an individual entity.
the rest is at There's something very wrong with today's internet

That's a great pointer! And a great headline, too! Thanks, Jonathan. I love the guy's reaction and strategy. Brilliant.

Your comment about being stuck with knitting books is an interesting addition to a post I read a year back called My TiVo thinks I'm gay. TiVo has somewhat of a disquieting ability to discern your viewing preferences from the things you ask it to record. TiVo uses those perceived preferences to thoughtfully record other stuff it ‘thinksâ€(image) you might enjoy. The article talks about how one ownerâ€(image) s TiVo started recording shows that clearly indicated it thought that he was gay. To compensate, the owner started recording programs about war and other ‘manlyâ€(image) subjects. His TiVo then began overcompensating, thinking his tastes were more in line with those of a WWII Nazi official. In the parlance of show biz; Wackiness ensued!
