Service oriented computing offers a new approach to programming. To be useful for large and diverse sets of problems, effective service composition is crucial. While current tools offer various tools and methods for selecting services based on various user-defined criteria, little attention has been paid to how such services interact. We believe that semantic co\"ordination or agreement between services will be an important factor in the usability and success of service composition, and that this agreement cannot be guaranteed by semantic description alone. We have developed a simple but apparently effective technique for selecting services based on their record of performance with others.
