Instant censorship

My online experiences this week has convinced me that it would be useful to incorporate a simple function into both Web browsers and RSS readers whereby one could pre-filter out a whole load of crap simply by defining your unwanted keywords. Maybe Frode could build something like that into the next version of Hyperwords?! Single-click on a word - such as iPhone - in order to blacklist it, and hey presto you'd never have to view a page with that word on it again.

Another thought. I studied revolutions for a year at Cambridge and reached the conclusion that most so-called revolutions were in fact bifurcations. Something for all those self-proclaimed agents of transformative technological change to bear in mind. I'm feeling a bit bifurcated about social networks right now...
