   RE: [xml-dev] W3C suckered by Microsoft?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

There is a story here, Elliotte. The story is 
that HP is experimenting with a technology that 
traces idea emergence along some line of cited 
or uncited mentions, and that some ideas are 
obvious.  On the other hand, the exact use of 
certain phrases in articles and books without 
citing originals is also detectable.  Newspapers, 
universities and journal publishers will be 
grateful for it and use it to determine when 
students are doing less than quality work and using 
less than quality sources.

Blogs will receive a quality ranking.  That's all.

Memes are a concept to make uncited references 
appear to be natural.  Memes are voodoo, more 
of the pseudo-science, poor scholarship and 
marketingese over research that made the 90's the 
decade of the gullible.
