I’ve been spending more time than I’d like to admit over at likebetter.com. The premise is simple enough: you’re presented with two images, and you click on the one you like better. Then you get two more images, rinse, repeat. After you do this a few times, the brain at the bottom of the page turns pink, letting you know it knows something about you. Click on the brain, and it tells you what it knows. Then you go back to clicking on images until it knows something else.
I’d be curious to learn something about the intelligence-gathering algorithm at work here, because of the fifty or so things the brain has told me, only three have been off the mark. Well, two really, because I actually changed my mind about one thing— the brain was right, I would lead a cult if I had the opportunity!
