An unnamed correspondent writes: "PC World reports that 'big-shot Web directories such as Yahoo and LookSmart' are missing thousands of the best links, which a new startup HotLinks has in in their directory by building it from people's bookmarks." This sounds like a smart idea (building from people's own bookmarks), but is it doomed to create in-breeding of links? That is, in a search engine based on bookmarks, will they be able to get enough "new blood"?
