guest post at read/writeweb – collaborative filtering: lifeblood of the social web

i’ve written a guest post at read/writeweb on the importance of collaborative filtering and recommendation systems.

the (cf) system is without a doubt the lifeblood of the social web. even though different platforms apply it to varying extents, the system is still there at the core, and the social web would look more like rush hour in downtown Lahore if the community wasn’t actively policing the traffic.

give readwriteweb a visit for the whole article. if you’re feeling really generous, give us a digg.

guest post at read/writeweb: friendfeed – one feature to the tipping point

i’ve written a guest post at read/writeweb on the evolution of friendfeed.

friendFeed is not a lifestream aggregator anymore (at least to me and hundreds of others), it is the perfect platform for sharing and discussing content with groups focused on a specific topic. it is forums 2.0, if you will and it is precisely what the social web, even with gods like facebook, digg, youtube, and flickr, are severely lacking.

check out the entire post and follow me on friendfeed and twitter.
