Thank you for sharing your story! Your view on the current state of content recommenders is very interesting, and I’m excited to hear and see more re your experiment.
We at Bibblio Labs are also working on experiments in the RecSys space, including rethinking ‘popularity’. We’re also tackling continuous challenges of scale and (re)indexing.
I’ll definitely sign up. I’m also keen to share ideas at any time in the process. Good luck,
