Comments, Links

John just wrote a post about how he likes Douban. Yeah, I signed up and added a few books too. And at first I think it's cool, but then looking at the tag cloud for similar site Reader² (Dan Brown? Orson Scott Card? Neal Stephenson? no thanks...) I wonder if all this aggregation isn't just a way to kill individuality, promote homogeneity. I imagine it's a danger. Of course, these things are only tools.

Micah,

The main issue now is that there aren't enough users adding their books. Give it some time to build momentum, and you'll start seeing some interesting recommendations.
