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.
