    Okay, ADN developers. I have a mission for you. Use user annotations to let people easily fill out interests or add tags, then have views for tag-based "rooms" that users can discover easily. Find like minds, talk about stuff, follow each other.

      No, I mean for users. Ongoing interests or affiliations attached to profiles. Rooms for hashtagged posts would also be great, though. >> @core: @ablaze You mean like #hashtags?

        @ablaze Maybe even let others endorse users for tags so that idiots don’t tag themselves for topics where they actually don’t have any value to add. Social vetting.

          YES. It definitely needs a clean-up mechanism of some sort. >> @sabbatical: @ablaze Maybe even let others endorse users for tags so that idiots don’t tag themselves for topics where they actually don’t have any value to add. Social vetting.

            @ablaze interesting idea; it will be so cool to see how far beyond twitter like functionality developers run with all the cool new API stuff as it continues to be released. #TheseAreExcitingTimes (if Morpheus is right and all…)

              @ablaze I don’t know what you mean by room. If you click on a hashtag, it collects all posts with that particular topic. That filters people by interest, in a rough way.
