I'm mostly a code monkey but interested in how information is used generally, even wrote my master's thesis on it, sort of. Currently working on developing an online community for academics as well as a digital library for educational professionals.

comment Algorithm that determines relevant attributes in ordered list
@JTrana yeah this problem is similar. The idea is to be able to sort new lists based on the same criteria, so the things the people like best show up first in the list.

comment Algorithm that determines relevant attributes in ordered list
This sounds right I think. I guess my concern is how computationally complex this might become, especially with a long list & a lot of variables.

comment Algorithm that determines relevant attributes in ordered list
I guess? Although it is not actually a direct sort. I'll come up with a better example in my question that makes it clearer.

Personal page here: web.cecs.pdx.edu/~vmegler She's still in the business, pursuing a PhD in CS. Her page mentions her "15 minutes of fame" re: The Hobbit.

@ProphetV unless someone else stops by looks like your comment is the closest thing to an answer.

comment Tabs versus spaces—what is the proper indentation character for everything, in every situation, ever?
Oh right, got it. Of course, the reverse is also true. If you cut and paste in code that is tab-indented and didn't know, unless your editor auto-expands them to spaces you could run into the same problem. Although I'll add for me the real headache is reformatting indentation from, say, 3-space to 4-space, especially when the coder also uses spaces to line up variables, parentheses, etc.
