So recommendation engines will offer you stuff to watch based on your viewing habits…how boring! What about surprise, variety and getting something interesting that someone else thought about and produced thinking people might enjoy it.
What happens if you watch a CSI miami and suddenly you are recommended the CSI New York and CSI Paris and CSI Bolton etc. You are inundated with Police genre…Or Broke Back Mountain gets you a recommendation for all things related and you are not interested. How many times must you watch a genre before the software decides you only want to watch that for the rest of your life. You nor any other human is really in control of your TV Content…a piece of software is? Arggghhhh where are we headed?
