critical reading for the rude

search wikia talk

Jimbo Wales posted on the Search Wikia mailing list that a big announcement is due out soon (possibly today, says he).  The chatter on the list is sometimes interesting, but there’s a goodly shot of talk-about-the-talk-on-the-list.  One contributor and another trading jabs (that’d be Seth and Jimbo, by the by)… So.  What Search Wikia?

Read the wiki content page here, and brainstorm sheet here.

Some highlights of discussion:

  • True visual searching?
  • Mediated search, but how?
  • Taxonomy vs. folksonomy (again)
  • Query forms that rank what the searcher values as authoritative?

So we wait.
