Touchstone is a Personal Relevancy Engine. This means it can automatically calculate which Digg stories are the most ‘Personally Relevant’ to you.
Therefore it is conceptually possible for someone to write a Touchstone ‘Output Adapter’ that:
- Checked incoming Touchstone items to see if they came from the Digg RSS feed.
- If they came from Digg and they are rated, by Touchstone, as very personally relevant to you, the adapter could execute the ‘Digg’ command for that story on your behalf.
This way, Touchstone could automatically Digg stories for you.
Update: I'm not sure if this is useful or even appropriate for Digg - it was just an idea that struck me - if nothing else it is an interesting application of Touchstone Technology. Feel free to comment to let me know your thoughts.
If you want to know when the adapter has been made so you can try it out, sign up to our mailing list (on the left hand side of the page) and we’ll let you know when it’s done. No spam I promise - I hate spam.
