Search Beyond Google

There has been so much media recently around Yahoo dropping Google as their search provider and Google's forthcoming announcement of an IPO. Over at Tech Review(MIT, subscription required). Wade Roush has done a great analysis of the market and potential tools that revolve around search beyond Google and beyond the web. I'll be interested to see how these new competitors measure up over time.

Search Beyond Google, by Wade Roush (March 2004)

I guess all of this excitement reminds me of my time at Altavista 4 years ago. Google was just starting to overshadow us. Funny enough Altavista is now in the hands of Yahoo and Google is the darling of the search industry.

Products mentioned in the article: Mooter, Dipsie, Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Altavista, AskJeeves.

IA Summit is a Bust for Me

I won't be able to make it so I will not be able to present. However I am looking into writing an article about the topic so that it's still available to the community. Stay tuned.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

Well I think it's semi-official. I put in my reg fees committing to sing with the Stanford Symphonic Choir at Carnegie Hall next January 2005. Boy is this going to be an amazing opportunity. I've been singing since the 1st grade in various school and church choirs and this opportunity has come up. I'm so excited. I'll post more information about the concert as the time gets closer.

Hopfully no ice or snow storms to prevent me from enjoying New York.
