Impact of Web 2.0 on Search

Friday, April 17th, 2009



Ricardo Baeza-Yates gave us Yahoo’s view that they do not believe in black boxes as a way to solve the complexities of search but that its more about what can be learnt from users.

Next Web 09

Thursday, April 16th, 2009



Something of a departure for me is to attend Next Web 2009, in Amsterdam. Its different as it is not explicitly about the world of user experience, but more about technology and its application on the internet.


Hello Group have sent me here to gauge just what is coming up in the world of the web in these really testing times. It will be good to see the new startups touting their wares and to hear from notable technorati and their different points of view.
