Ancient present

Doc Searls

” I can speak for Hotbot, which is still my first-choice search engine; but by a shrinking margin. I often test search engines by looking for strings of text buried deep in long documents on my own site. But since Lycos bought it, Hotbot has become more of a portal and less of a search tool. And its searches find less. Reality 2.0 was my original blog: a pile of stuff I wrote before there were blogs.

“In a world where everyone can search and has apps, is a web portal relevant?,” Now people arrive through search. The presentation layer is independent of the content.

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.


Top Ten Subliminal Searches

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned before more than half of the traffic to my blog comes from search engines. What's sometimes fun to do is take a look at various search terms that people use to find my blog. This morning I had a really good chuckle because I saw that the search: top 10 reasons not to do your homework Put me in position number 2 on Google (at least on the servers in the US that I used).

Presenting in a networked age

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuit’s Big Question this month has to do with the increasing prevalence of internet access during presentations. The context is that during presentations it’s certainly possible that your audience is multi-tasking, and the question is; what are the implications? The audience can be doing things related to the presentation, like live-blogging it, tweeting it, or taking notes (I’ve been known to mindmap a keynote a time or two).
