Today’s invention springs from the idea in the original book that everyone likes to describe themselves in terms of their likes and dislikes.


When you meet someone new, you text them a unique codeword which they can choose to forward to a central public number. This downloads to their mobile device a list of say your top five movies, music recordings and books. They can then select any of these to receive immediately a clip or quotation from each.

Naturally, this service would cost the person whose favourites were being viewed. It might also allow an occasional advert to be interspersed in order to lessen the cost of payments to the copyright holders.
