Like my brownhouse:
   advertisements will be perfectly molded
Monday, June 5 2000
Over the weekend I hatched a scheme to programmatically track the interests of people and target advertising at them based on things they've said and places they've been. The more a person says, the more I know about what he wants and the more I know about his ability to pay for it. If someone talks to my program long enough, he will never hear anything he doesn't want to. Even the advertisements will be perfectly molded to his tastes. If my scheme is carried to an extreme, no one will ever experience anything the slightest bit uncomfortable as they float peacefully in their nutrient vats, kept alive for some reason more plausible than the ludicrous premise of The Matrix.
Today I worked some on the database model for my harebrained advertising scheme.
