Does this have privacy concerns, given that you can also look up when a user was last seen?

possible_viewers = User.find_all{|user| user.time_last_seen == question.time_last_viewed}
likely_viewers = possible_viewers.find_all{|possible_viewer| not (possible_viewer.tags & question.tags).empty?}

Good question! I guess if the accuracy is limited to whole days it should not be a big issue. – hlovdal Aug 13 '09 at 2:01
Oh noes, someone knows I viewed a question on php variables last. My identity is now compromised! – Ian Elliott Aug 13 '09 at 2:35
