I just realized something really scary.

The way that fb and the horrible birdsite display their news feeds: an infinite scrolling list in rough order of what they think will cause you to react... is based on my early work with (and arguably invention of) collaborative filtering in the early 90s. It was a good idea, but in widespread adoption has seemed to cause some terrible, real problems.

I'm really sorry, everybody.
