HTML Working Group,

Greetings. On the topic of empowering communities, consumers, parents and teachers with regard to consumer feedback about the upcoming digital textbooks in use in their schools, I would like to describe an idea to enhance consumer advocacy on the Web.

Consumer advocacy groups, e.g. the Better Business Bureau, can each independently spider and index blog articles and tweets, where blog articles and tweets can have, keywords or folksonomic tags, e.g. "bbb" or "#bbb". Each consumer advocacy group could then both utilize the indicated data and make that data available on their websites. By utilizing some keywords or folksonomic tags, consumers can utilize their blogs and tweets to provide consumer feedback, including about digital textbook products, which can then be aggregated and presented by various consumer advocacy organizations.

Kind regards,

Adam Sobieski
