Thinking of my PLE, I tried to identify what, if any recommenders did I have in there?
- Friends and Colleagues - they know my interests and often share links, movie clips etc
- The Oldaily. To me, this is a recommender. I am interested in many of the same things that Stephen is, so when he thinks a link is good enough to be placed in the Oldaily, I take notice.
- My RSS feeds, again, to me, these are recommenders. I don't have a lot of them, but I am very interested in what ever they turn up.
- My Twitter Searches - I have a coupe of twitter searches set-up in Netvibes which feed me twitters based on hash tags (#plenk2010 is one of them). Again, these are to me recommenders.
