Scholarly Authority on Web 3.0

In the June 15, 2007 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education, there was an interesting article called "Scholarly Authority on Web 3.0." It talked about the future of new web 3.0 projects, where ranking would not just be based on popularity. Web 3.0 programs would use computer algorithms that would weight sources on a variety of factors, including information about the author, importance within a disciplinary community, references, etc. This could help promote good academic scholarship on the web - and help people to find it.
