Conversation Searches

Tony Karrer

What are Conversation Searches? I often present around my Information Radar tools and methods, particularly my use of an RSS Reader. During those presentations, I'll mention what are sometimes called "vanity searches." These searches look for any mention of your name, company, URLs across blogs and other sites. For me, these searches primarily allow me to see what people are saying in response to something that I've put out there.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

Twitter as a search engine. But I never really conceptualized it as search. First, I searched for something for me. But you have to have a question in mind to make the search meaningful beyond curiosity. I leave you with this: An ounce of chocolate contains about 20 mg of caffeine… recr : @MortgageChick They say it takes 21 days for a ‘change’ to become a habit. Clearly, climate change advocates have taken up tweeting.

In theory I could harvest the YouTube RSS (Google just reinstated YouTube RSS a few months ago) but that's on the list of things to test. To filter the results, though, I did something different: url~youtube This creates a regular expression search in the Media table, looking for a media URL that contains the string 'youtube'. Nothing changed. What would change that? I tried changing the format in the keyword.

It changed over time, but not in a real-time way. For example, we could search in real time, but search engine indexes were essentially archives, no matter how often they were updated. Technorati , IceRocket , PubSub and other live RSS-fed search engines came along to address that issue, as did Google Blogsearch as well. But they mostly covered blogs and sites with RSS feeds. And RSS is still a Live Web thing.).

Five Myths of Social Learning

However, in other contexts culture can be more challenging to delineate and change might not always be what it seems. Posterous theme by Cory Watilo. EMERGENT CITIES.

Information Radar

Tony Karrer

Managing your RSS Feeds has some good suggestions on how to do assessment in an ongoing basis using quarantine folders. RSS Readers A central tool for my information radar is my RSS reader. If you are new to the world of RSS readers and subscribing to blogs, here are some good starting points. Remembering content I've seen via my RSS Reader has changed a bit over the past few years. Since I rely on desktop search, they work okay for me.

Why You Should Provide Full Feeds (especially on Blogger)

Tony Karrer

I've been talking recently about blogging for learning professionals and claiming that as a blog reader, you spend your time in the RSS reader. Then I realized that very few people who subscribe to my blog actually go to the blog - they stay in their RSS Reader. Ah, so to fix that I decided to change my feed to a partial feed so you only get the first paragraph. Google only indexes Blogger's feed (not the blog itself) - so search is terrible on blogs with partial feeds.
