Hey folks,

We at Mindswap are conducting an experiment on trust network inferences 
and recommender systems for Jen Golbeck's thesis and we need more 
participants!

Since there has been some shared movie going and...er..."discussion" 
(Underworld sucks!!!) about film, I though y'all would make an 
interesting addition to the network.

If you'd like to help out, please go to:
	http://trust.mindswap.org/FilmTrust
and
	1) Sign up, it'll only take a few minutes
	2) Rate a few movies -- we're connected to IMDB, so you can rate just 
about anything
	3) Review a movie or two
and most importantly
	4) add a friend to your friend's list; you can search for people, or 
you could convince people to join!

By "friend" all we mean is that you have a pretty good sense how likely 
this person would be to give you movie recommendations that would work 
*for you*. So if you think someone has *GREAT* taste in movies, rate 
'em high! If you can't stand that trash they love, rate them low. If 
you hate Underworld and the last three Matrix movies, rate me high! :)

We really appreciate your consideration.

Cheers,
Bijan.
