Right — the tools we have now require too much manual input to get to anything close to interesting. Likeminded people in certain interest areas are hard to find — even though we know those people are out there. I think you also touch on a key point that finding ways to express our interests among different groups will become more important over time too. Figuring out that context (eg when I’m into sports mode, into tech mode, into hiking etc) is something we do as humans easily, but has been hard to train computers to handle yet.
