Subject Personalization Server [was: RE: Happy to be wrong!]
Date Sat, 29 Jan 2000 18:18:28 GMT
I realize this is a bit off topic but it was touched on in the 
message below.  If it generates enough interest we can move the 
discussion elsewhere.

As the note below mentions, web sites are increasingly dynamic and 
personalized.  The personalization is both explicit, where the user 
can define the kinds of information they want to see, and implicit, 
where server-based rules pick relevant content based on previous 
requests, demographics (to the extent know), etc. of the user.  The 
ATG Dynamo "Personalization Server" is an example that fills this 

Is there any interest in an open-source project to address this need?

Perhaps, but nowadays, all Web sites are or will become dynamic. The 
is : let your sites be "intelligent" (that is : serving content 
depending on
the client profile), and for this, sites need to be dynamic...
If you want people to use Cocoon, you need also (and quickly) to 
design a
(robust) dynamic architecture.
