Here are my guesses about what topics tickle us on the Radar. Tim: collective intelligence, business, and lefty politics. Rael: Rails, Ajax, and ETech. Marc: Food, Startups, and Things Other People Are Doing Wrong. Nat: Machine Learning, the Porn Industry, and History. Our ideal stories are below the fold.
Tim: Al Gore’s IPOing an investment company that selects renewable energy projects based on consumer data mined from supermarkets’ affiliate card databases.
Marc: A New 37-Signals inspired startup to sell gourmet breads to TiVo users bit by new DRM.
