I haven’t gotten to look at it from my wi-fi connection on the Amtrak Acela (which is clearly a work in progress, but nonetheless a very exciting development), but here’s a link to the video.

Note that you’ll have to install Microsoft Silverlight to view it.

Alternatively, you can watch the slideshow below, but I’m not sure how much sense it will make without the voice-over.

    You know, my research program is almost entirely along these lines, except that I do OLAP-like stuff and not search.

    Note that you rarely talk about this stuff on your blog. You appear to suffer from the same “research idea to blog” transfer problem I have. I have trouble talking about research ideas on my blog. People like Peter Turney do it well…

    Blogging is a tough medium for talking about research ideas, but I’ll check out how Peter does it. As you can imagine, I invested a bit more effort into that presentation than I do into a blog post. Doesn’t posting the talk on my blog count as blogging about it? 🙂
