I’ve grown to appreciate their algorithm for showing me things I’d _probably_ like, and they tend to be right. But that being said, I *really* wish they weren’t so aggressive about the shuffling.

I hear this complaint a lot from people in the house:

They want to show me something on Facebook. They hit the back button. It’s gone. *poof* A whole bunch of other stuff pops up.

I show them how to use the search. Sometimes the search works, sometimes it doesn’t.

clergyzHere’s a sample. Their adaptive algorithm for ad serving is starting to get _really_ good. Here, on this very page, right _now_, they’re showing me this ad.

Somewhere in my head, there’s always been that desire to stand up in front and be “that guy” that gives the talk that the people go, “woah, never thought about that – gonna change my life now” yet not with any existing system of religion or philosophy or psychology or whatever.

So, custom clergy stole? Yup. That’s right in my range of ‘potential wants’. So, yeah, they’re getting good.
