Search vocabulary

Joining the Dots has a post about how search engines can try and cope with the variety of meaning of words in language.

One of my favorite talks from TED is Erin McKean’s so I found this very interesting.

I have to say that the key feature that is keeping me locked to Google as a search engine is its Suggest page.



  1. Oo I love a little bit of serendipity, especially when it includes a better explanation of the benefits of serendipity than the one I normally give in search workshops. Thanks for the link and thanks for the link to the TED talk. I hadn’t seen that one and it’s got some great examples of word play.
