Yes, yes, yes, and yes.    (03)

Which brings me back to T-Spaces, and the need for categories and ratings.    (04)

T-Spaces is likely to be a solid foundation for such things. It came to the
unrev archives by way of Jack Park, if I'm not mistaken (apologies if I have
misattributed the person who brought it to our attention once again!)    (05)

The thing is, I know there are probably 5 or 6 other candidates in that
archive that match this category.    (06)

Going back to Doug's vision of a "lens" through which we view the web,
wouldn't it be great if:
   a) When that reference came up, we were able to attach a category
        label to it, that would be visible whenever looking at the web through
        that lens.    (07)

   b) We could get the ratings of folks who have used/reviewed the
        technology.    (08)

Earlier, we carried on discussions about ways to "add ratings" to the web.
The same mechanisms we discussed then (that I do not now recall), could
be used to add categories -- i.e. to "semanticize the web".    (09)

Then I could query:
  * What things are like T-Spaces, and how well do they rate, and
     what do I use to code them with, anyway?    (010)

With those questions answered, I'd be ready to choose a platform to build
a colloboration tool with.    (011)
