I once believed that everything is on the internet. That might be true, but I'd never know it. Search today has some major drawbacks, such as normally you can only find the popular results to any search query. Sometimes however you want the unpopular ones.
I've also found that when I have an idea that I might want to share, I'm at a loss as to where to share it. If I had some great research idea for a doctorate... where would I post such a thing? If I had a great idea for a book, which collection of authors looking for book ideas could I send it to?
The social net allows famous people to give this sparks of an idea to the world, and sometimes a person will act on it.. but what about not so famous people with interesting questions and ideas? I have no clue.
Anyway, this brings me to the point of my post. I want an automated "objective" news feed. I want the top news stories of the day to be filtered through an "adjective filter" giving ratings to the news stories that use the least amount of adjectives and or adverbs. Now obviously I don't really mean adjectives, as language is much more complex than that. However, I am sure that there are linguists out there who know how to tell if a word is an opinion making adjective, or is an actual fact.
Take these two sentences for example:
