If a user does things to personalize a Web site, does that make her a
"better" user? I have in mind things like creating a virtual model (eg,, creating an account (many places), creating a wish list
(, inviting people to see the stuff you've saved (eg, and more.

What do I mean by "better?" As I write this, I find more definitions. I had
in mind "better" from the business's point of view: more likely to return,
more likely to spend time, more likely to buy. Maybe it means other things,

I know what I think, but I don't have any data. Do you?

Mail to me for summarizing, discussion to the list.

thanks                          -- hs
