A serendipity button

I always dreamed of what I called a Serendipity Button - a kind of sliding scale you could apply to (say) search results. A low serendipity setting would show you the results you were expecting, but a high serendipity setting would reveal apparently unrelated, but curiously intriguing, results that you were not expecting.

Wouldn't that be cool?

  1. well, this is a comment and concept close to my heart. Watch this space. I will eventually find a product person to "get" the importance of this concept to our users and impliment it.
