As an MIT alum, I take a special pride in having published a short article in the July/August issue of Technology Review. It’s entitled “To Search, Ask” (with credit to Richard Feynman as due). The cover story, David Talbot’s “Search Me“, is a report on Wolfram Alpha.
Between this issue, the recent issue of IEEE Computer with a “beyond search” theme, and of course the Google / Bing marketing battles, it’s great to see an increased (and more mainstream) focus on thinking beyond the ten blue links. Go HCIR! Go exploratory search!
