Firstly, if you don't want to contribute, go and play with WF or DP. I was watching a doco last night on the big G, and they were talking about Larry Page and his algo. Nothing new revealed. One thing that I did pick up on was where he got the idea from. The idea for the links weighting of the algo came from Scientific papers/journals or whatever you want to call them. For example if scientific paper A was referenced in 20 subsequent papers it must be better and more relevant that paper B which was only referenced by 5 subsequent papers. I've been toying with the idea all day that there could possibly be some clues here. I haven't been able to think of any yet, but I come from a journalistic/creative background, so am unfamiliar with the whole scientific publishing and peer review systems. So I thought I'd throw the idea out here and see if we can come up with anything.
