XML Concepts: Chat room content-rating, -indexing, and -reporting system

One thing I’ve noticed with Winksite is that it is difficult to find other chats.

There are tools that electronically grade student essays.


XML Chat Index

Prospective searches for chatroom content


I think the solution to Winksite is for there to be a tool that monitors content in the same way that computers can evaluate essay content and structure.

In my view, what’s need is for Winksite to provide an index to live chat-topics.

But this shouldn’t be confined to topic. Rather, the indexing should use XML and pings to do a real-time evaluation of the chat-discussion-language, then automatically index these chats to a central index.

Users could use a PubSub or Technorati-like prospective search to be on the look out for certain types of chats meeting certain user-defined criteria:

  • Computer-rating in terms of quality of language, discussion
  • Appropriate window
  • Topic, types of key words used

    One thing I have noticed with chats is that the title of the chat group isn’t all that meaningful. A discussion in Yahoo may have the title of Cats, but the actual discussion topic could be between cat lovers who are getting together to go to a restaurant.

    If I want restraunt-chats, “CATS” doesn’t take me there.

    And if I want “CAT CHAT,” the title of the chat doesn’t match the actual content of the discussion.

    I’d like to see some tools that do to chats and real-time discussion-conferences, what the XML tools do with news and blogs-monitoring.

    I’d also like to see an index of the live chats based on both topics and the actual words and content being used.

    I’d like to see the same tools used for grading essays also applied to online chats so that I can extract these ratings and then index them so I can have other tools search through these lists and help direct me to quality discussions, content that is related to my interests, and more easily find unfolding discussions that are related to what I’m actually interested in.

    I don’t want to have to hunt through lists. Nor do I want to have to look at a title of a chat-group, and ignore something based on a title that doesn’t match the actual chat content.


    Summary User requirements


  • Tool that searches for real-time chat.

  • Searches could be by both ping-notify from the platform or chat-participants.

  • A system that evaluates chat-content based on quality, topic, subject, and information value.

  • Apply tools that can grade essay content to chat content.

  • Software rates quality of conversion and other user-defined parameters.

  • Search and indexing based on content quality, not just topic.

  • Create an index of these real time chats.

  • Auto-notification when chat-discussions fit the parameters I define, and fall within a specific window I define in a prospective search.

  • Method to downgrade chat-notification when chat-topics diverge from the topic.

  • Platforms could have a auto-notify to FeedMesh when X-number of participants enter a chat. Or the platforms could have a system that disabled the chat-notification if the conversation and chat were not intended to be open to the public or widely known.


  • XML tools are far from being close to be where they could be. This is not a problem. It is merely confirmation that at times when developers and users think that computers have about exhausted their range of possibilities, that there are many ideas still to come.

    There’s plenty of work and potential for growth. The key is to fully apply the XML tools to all forums, and ensure that users are given access to the content they want.

    Right now, it appears as though the pieces of this puzzle exist: The software to evaluate language quality and content; and indexing systems that can use super computers to quickly go through this data, index it, then report the information that users want.

    All that’s needed at this point is a decision to put the two pieces together. I’m confident others have thought about it. The question remains: How soon will it be before I can create a Technorati Watch list for a specific chat discussion in Winksite, and get automatically directed to a Winksite conference discussion as it unfolds?

    Right now, I have to hunt for those discussions. In my view, things could be far easier. And I’m sure they will soon.
