Delivering Dave Winer's sushi

Dave Winer compares RSS to a sushi bar: "I'd like a little bit more of that."

To realize Dave's dream, we spent some time creating this idealized Sushi-bar-like RSS support system.

Here are the results.

First, to actually be a system that lets users "ask more of that," users need to have some indicators and tools right in their aggregator.

The current method is far too cumbersome. [I'll spare your the details.]

What's needed is a simplified approach. Every feed-result should have a simple color-wheel-like-star which parameters along the spokes.

Users should be able to toggle the spokes to adjust the outputs.

Specific spokes would have names like "concepts," "names," "Key words" and "display options."

Ideally what should be happening is that as the user gets new content, they would adjust the java-like spokes to adjust the parameters. Boom! Instantaneously, they would actually get new content right before them, not have to mess with changing codes, uploading new URIs, or creating new search strings to load into a prospective search tool.

Ideally, the new information and result would get assigned the code based on the position of the user-controlled toggles.

To actually get "more of this" would need t select the parameters that are "associated with what they like" and then have some searches conducted real time.

Ideally, those feeds could be added with one click, kind of like the Newsgator buzz-button.

As I change the options, I would change the list/result. Also, I should be able to combine searches into a simulators to get real time toggling of the content changes.

I'd like to be able to change the result display; and also change the results with some simple tweaks.

Some examples on output are: A9, Clusty, and Gizmodo. By adjusting the color-wheel, I'd have real-time updates in content.

Until that happens, I still have to visit the Sushi bar to request home delivery.

I like Dave's idea. I look forward to getting served and enjoying the Sushi in the restaurunt right before the chef.
