6 Months of Security Links #2011

I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

Quora filled with Subjective Opinions #social

I wrote this as a response to Scoble’s post: Why I was wrong about Quora as a blogging service …

I’ve found Quora a place to get comments and quotes from technology insiders on subjects that I blog about, something that they would often not devote an entire post to.

I like Quora for the questions I follow and read all the opinions, whether these have been hidden or not. I realize that these are not the answers to the Question, but somebody’s subjective opinion and that some people really think that somebodies subjective opinion is not valuable so they press “Not Helpful,” which is their subjective opinion. Forgetting that people are subjective is something many people do.

I’ve currently been working on a project which incorporates the fact that people’s comments and scores are subjective and which devines what an objective truth might be based on multiple factors. Which means people are weighted by the quality of their opinions and previous evaluation of other people’s opinions. This might be a solution for Quora.

Another way to go is /. meta moderation, if people are giving poor feedback then they can’t give feedback as often as when their feedback is good. Which may lead to more constructive feedback.
