Here’s a copy of a message I just posted to the iPod Developers’ mailing list:
Here’s a whacko idea just to think about for the time being. The
iPod, iTunes and perhaps other players allow listeners to rate
tracks. It’s a 1-5 stars thing on the Apple products.
Would’t it be cool if there was a way to transmit those ratings back
to the podcaster as a form of automated feedback?
I’ve spent no time thinking about the implementation or the
implications, but thought I’d just throw the raw idea out to the list
