Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Yesterday, I wrote about ways our Midas Rich Text LSX could be used to enhance blogging, especially with automatic cross-referencing. Another related idea is automatic keywords. {btw, I ran the idea by Andrew Pollack, and he thought it sounded "obscure", so the vote is currently 0 to 1 for using this]

This could be used a few ways. One is for automatic categorization, so that posts about a particular topic would be automatically grouped. An even better one might be Concept Experts. If a concept or keyword or phrase is mentioned, the Concept Experts box would be modified to include that expert. For example, if QuickPlace is mentioned, the Concept Expert box could include Rob Novak - QuickPlace, and if it also mentioned "web design", the Concept Expert box might also include Volker Weber - web design (for this). The beauty is, every blogger could have their own lists, as long as they like, of concepts and experts, and the links would simply pop up automatically. What do you think, you anonymous readers, you?
