[internet librarian] Search tools

David Weinberger

Gary Price from Infodocket is moderating a panel on what’s new in search. The first speaker is from Blekko.com , which he says “is thought of as the third search engine” in the US market. ” When you search for “kate spade” you get authenticated Kate Spade fashion stuff. Weblib.com describes itself on its site as “Natural Language Processing Tools and Customizable Knowledge Bases for Semantic Search and Discovery Applications.”

Grimmelman non search neutrality

David Weinberger

James Grimmelmann, whose writing on the Google Books settlement I’ve found helpful, has written an article about the incoherence of the concept of “search neutrality&# — “the idea that search engines should be legally required to exercise some form of even-handed treatment of the websites they rank. &# (He blogs about it here.)

Searching for news media that support Schema.org

David Weinberger

Let’s say you have the weird desire to see if a particular online news site is producing news articles that support the Schema.org standard. I just posted a tiny little site — even uglier than usual — that lets you search for a particular news media site. Thanks to a suggestion from Dan Brickley, it’s using a custom search engine from Google. If you get back a bunch of articles, then presumably the site is supporting Schema.org.

The Pull of Narrative – In Search of Persistent Context

John Hagel

  As for text, it has been progressively deconstructed from books to articles to blog postings to 140 character tweets. We live in a world of ever more change and choice , a world where we have far more opportunity than ever to achieve our potential. That kind of world is enormously exciting, and full of options. But it is also highly disorienting, threatening to overwhelm us with sensory and mental overload.

» Radical New Innovation at Outside.in: Search! Forgot to mention that we finally restored search to outside.in. We had a pretty lame search function in the original iteration of the site, which we decided to just kill off because it wasnt very useful (and, perhaps because it wasnt useful, no one was using it.) But we decided a few weeks ago to do a little mod of Google site search, which turns out to work very well.

Facebook Graph Search and your company's "digital plumage"

The (in)accuracy of long-tail Wikipedia articles – can you help improve mine?

Trends in the Living Networks

A well-known study was carried out in 2005 by scientific journal Nature showing that the accuracy of Wikipedia articles on science was comparable to that of Encyclopedia Brittanica. A more recent study by Epic and University of Oxford again showed comparable quality of articles across many domains of study and languages. However the problem is that both of these studies compared articles of substance on academic topics. I’m not going to edit my own Wikipedia article.

The evolution of search will refine the spectrum of quality in media

Trends in the Living Networks

Search is not getting better, or it certainly seems that way. In the evolutionary battle between search engines and search engine marketers, the search engines are not keeping ahead, and crap content is finding its way into the top of search results. This makes search users unhappy, opens the way for alternatives to the dominant player in the Western world, AKA Google. In the context of search, if people find what they are looking for, it is high quality.

Abstract : "People are seeking more meaningful and customized information than what is obtained by keywords-based queries and document retrieval through a search engine.
