Your stuff should learn what you like, right, in order to serve you
with better and more effective advertisements?
So when I die on the cross and there is a crown of thorns and the
Roman soldiers beating me up, more happened but that is the
about which the stories stuck around the longest.
the next time I have to go through that I would prefer, now that
we know what parts of the story were most effective, through
years of feedback, to not have to go through all the shit that
matter so much, but to just go through and be served up with
effective shit, so maybe I could get the super size S&M soldiers
time, or alternatively, some hot groupies who technically qualify
soldiers, but who instead of torturing me actually give me a royal
send off, either way, as long as it maximizes the story.
And speaking of royal send offs, when I'm watching porn, shouldn't
there be a similar kind of principle at work, that watches my
behavior and learns what kind of porn I like, using some kind of
like timing or biofeedback or frequency and then tweaks the
so that it optimizes my experience -- gives me highlights, goes
to my favorite category etc, and thus can better serve me up with
And this would probably work in a lot of different circumstances.
So maybe there should be a generic "smartness" engine that takes
generic input and serves up better output, that could be used as a
platform for porn or crucifixions or any other experience.

||Ah - the first Christmas-themed post of the year.
||The trouble with that sort of thing (whether its used
for porn learning, or other parts of reality (if there
are really other parts)) is that it hones toward what
already has been experienced and therefore impedes
discovery of other weird b
||ut enjoyable stuff that has
not been discovered yet (by the person being the
porn navigator). Also, I dont believe theres such a
thing as recommending random weird but enjoyable
stuff because other people who liked what you like
also ordered one of these. That doesnt mean this
person will. It just meant a majority of other people
will. Majorities are meaningless and to be avoided.
Whats needed really is a bit of photocopier noise, to
introduce mutation, most of whic
will be just that
noise but now and then will produce a valuable
gem worth bookmarking. The downside of
recommender engines is that youll end up with only
top 50 products, and everything thats an outlier will
stay an outlier because its not b
||ought by the
majority, not stocked in shops that have shelves that
can hold the top 50, and not recognised as
commercially viable before its even released. Youll
end up with a locked-in high impedance barrier
between the systemically-induced popular and the
||Sorry Misread Title as Smartass engine. See link.
||Tindale that is a pretty sweet idea. It makes me wonder how many variables are factored into those recommendation engines. Just one? Do I get recommended Z and C if I like X and M and B if I like N? Or do people who like both X and and M get recommended V also?
||If it is just one variable it is hard to mutate it: random recommendations arent worth much. But if they factor in several variables, mutating one could add some good energy.
JHC what you posit is the promise of the mass mind. Even for things like martyrdom if one could lay out in an organized way a method to maximize return, that methods could be used for future endeavors by others. Ideally this would be used by administrators, many of whom I suspect are seat-of-pantsing it as they go.
||[Ian] you have the most unusual paragraph breaks.
[JHC] I demand unfiltered input... just like real life.
||[2 fries] Your brain selects the input so is never unfiltered. Good luck beating your baby neuron kill off. Maybe forcing oneself to look at uninteresting stuff will balance out the reality of it all since reality is everything having the same level of detail.
