ETech – Jeff Bezos on OpenSearchPosted: March 15, 2005
Global conciseness. What is it? It’s the thing that decided decaf coffee pots should be orange. Something Jeff mentioned W. Daniel Hillis once said. But that’s not Jeff’s talk.
A9.com demo. Vertical Search. Oops, Windows just crashed. Jeff has to reboot. 🙂 The idea is to zero in on relevant data. Example, do a medical search, your search should be in pubmed. Did a search for vioxx, clicked on different sidenav buttons to zero in on data. Jeff imagines eventually having thousands of vertical search options at A9. We want OpenSearch to do for search what RSS has done for content. A9 now makes it possible to syndicate search (OSRSS). Short talk (just about 10 minutes).
