As someone holding a degree in Psychology, and with a background in technology, I'm starting to feel like a psychologist for robots....  

I have previously blogged about developing my proprietary "green travel taxonomy" over many years, which is in fact a complex faceted-classification in the form of a database that currently drives the @greentravel1 Twitterbot. greentravel1 is also available on Blogspot as greentravel1.blogspot.com.  It currently consists of 4 primary "channels":

#GTNews consists of Google News searches based on the green travel faceted-classification.
#GTRetweet consists of analysis of the Twitter public timeline based on the same green travel faceted-classification.
#GTVideo currently searches an abbreviated dataset of key terms on Google Video for purposes of scalability.
#GTFeeds consists of an accumulated set of closely related feeds added manually. 
In short, greentravel1 delivers a continuous feed of all English language green travel news, the entire green travel related Twitter commentary, plus all new green travel videos and related blog feeds
