Halfbakery: Voting
Observations on votes   (+1, -1)  [vote for, against]
All TV ideas have postive votes; all philosophy ideas have negative votes.

All TV ideas have postive votes; all philosophy ideas have negative votes. Is this because TV is so easy to improve upon, and philosophy is damn hard stuff? (probably not, but it's a starting point).

Are there other interesting patterns?

BTW, I don't think of this as an idea, just a forum for discussion. Hope that's OK with the bakesperson.

This is what I was writing about just a minute ago!

People will find meta-patterns in the database. We should write programs to find these patterns. We're growing the next level of intelligence in here.

The ultimate goal is to make this database self-aware, so you can make it into an idea generator and send it to work in your place.

For me the goal's just mental masturbation.

Just what the world needs: a baked/2 AI. Your goal seems to be efficiency (Thing_1). Were an AI to comprehend the lunatic nature of this site, you might actually have constructed a successful Turing Machine.

Oh my god, a successful Turing Machine! That *would* be quite a breakthrough.
