You know, I've started on something similar, called MythStats.
Currenty I'm the only one submitting the records, but the webpage is
about 75% complete, so you can see what's been recorded. There's a
perl script that takes records from the oldrecording table, check to
see if it's been sent, and submits the data to the site.

Once enough data was collected, a "recommend" feature was planned, but
never implemented.

My site as well can be anon (for those scared of "Big Brother"), or
you can pick a id of your choice.
