See the following:
,----[ Snippet ]
| # A sort of semantic web, only that some of the data is stored not on
| your webserver, but on Google's server (an important distinction, Ithink
| - the competition can't access this meta-data, and it's a bit of a
| Google lock-in!)
| # Google becoming a meta search engine, an aggregator of other
| specialized search engines
| # Meta-keywords 2.0 ? the trust is build into Google's account system
| to prevent spamming
| # Social bookmarking and tagging a la del.icio.us
As for the former, I could set up a search engines news aggregator, such as:
We could choose a more impartial domain, I suppose. You know... avoiding the
dependence on Google (a third-party lockin). The key idea is that several
feeds of interest get entwined and presented to the group in the form of a
standard Web page. It's a real-time thing, handled by a PHP feed parser.
As for the latter (social bookmarking), we could use the Open Source Scuttle.
Let me know your thoughts...
