    I must disagree with you putting Explicit Collaborative Search into the (primarily) user mediated category. One of the main focuses of my research has been intentionally and exactly the opposite. See this paper: “Algorithmic Mediation for Collaborative Exploratory Search”

    When I (along with Maribeth Back and Gene Golovchinsky) started developing this a few years ago, the whole reason for doing so was to get away from the type of information seeking that happens as a result of collaborative filtering.

    But yes, I agree with the use of the “mediation” dimension. See also: http://palblog.fxpal.com/?p=274
