Gladiator Search

A friend of mine, Mike Rouch, implemented an interesting search solution for RealAge.com. The RealAge library consists of articles and other reference material on a wide variety of health and medical topics that have been selected by their researchers as relevant and reliable. The search engine lets you treat individual search hits like Roman gladiators. You give the thumbs-up to results that were helpful and the thumbs-down to results that were not. Over time, the system uses your preferences to adjust your results.

I think this is an interesting approach, and will be interested to see how well it works.
