[chox] Outfoxed uses your network ...

Web:	http://getoutfoxed.com/

Outfoxed uses your network 
of trusted friends and experts to help you find the good stuff and 
avoid the bad.

Outfoxed is the implementation side of my master's thesis at the 
University of Osnabrück, Germany. The thesis title is Trusted 
Metadata Distribution Using Social Networks. In a nutshell, I'm 
exploring ways for you to use your network of trusted friends to 
determine what's good, bad, and dangerous on the internet. 
Outfoxed does this by adding functionality to the Firefox web 
browser. Coding began on Dec 27th, 2004.

The essential idea of Outfoxed is that people make decisions 
based primarily on a few people whom they trust. The average 
person has a set of experts whom they consult in designated 
areas: the computer expert, the car expert, the fashion expert, the 
financial expert. If the opinions of these experts can be collected, 
they are incredibly useful: it is this metadata (data about other 
data) that gives the most intelligent filtering and sorting of the 
information on the internet.
