I Like Searching. But I’d Rather Sit Back and Not Search

deliveryOnce again, I’ve guest-blogged over at BingTweets about the future of search–or at least the future of search that I’d like to see. This post is called “What’s Better Than Searching? Delivery!” And it’s about the potential for services to get really smart about the things we’re interested in, and really good at delivering information related to them without us lifting a finger. (Yes, I know that alerts services of various sorts have been around for eons–but even the best of them aren’t the result of anything like the effort the world has put into improving Web search over the past fifteen years.)

If you check out the post, lemme know what you’d like to see in an alert service–either over at BingTweets, or right here.

    you’re right that alert services could get a lot better at delivering information we want to us. for that to happen, we’ll need a lot more metadata about new items on the web.

    oh, metadata.
