November 8 - Interestingness

Boing-Boing is reporting that Flickr has filed for a patent on a system for determining 'interestingness'. From the patent application abstract: 'Media objects, such as images or soundtracks, may be ranked according to a new class of metrics known as 'interestingness.' These rankings may be based at least in part on the quantity of user-entered metadata concerning the media object, the number of users who have assigned metadata to the media object, access patterns related to the media object, and/or a lapse of time related to the media object.' So basically, nobody else can use tags to label files. Totally original thinking from the folks at flickr. *cough* via Slashdot.
