Looking for a directory of blogs? Best of the Web Blogs offers a directory view of different blog categories.
One suggestion for them. How about an RSS feed for each category so I can see when a new resource has been added?
After talking with Yahoo, Microsoft and Google, former Alta Vista chief scientist, Andrei Broder, has decided to throw his hat in the ring with Yahoo.
He acknowledged talking with Google and Microsoft before accepting the Yahoo! position, but that he liked Yahoo’s ability to utilize both content and user information in improving search.
“I knew that whatever I would do would disappoint two-thirds of my friends,” Broder says.
Broder pioneered Alta Vista’s search efforts between 1999 and 2002 before joining IBM.
Google gets approval to provide Mountain View, CA with free wi-fi.
According to eWeek, Google is said to be interested in buying Riya/Ojos Inc., a maker of photo searching technology.
The rumored deal spotlights how search engines are focusing more on the caliber of their services, rather than just building the most extensive possible catalog of Internet locales.
Riya’s products can supposedly identify faces and read the text captured in photos. That level of recognition is a quantum leap for Internet search engines, now organizing photos and videos mainly based on written descriptions.
Let’s see how this pans out, shall we. Is this another un-founded rumor, or are we starting to see a news leak problem at Google (or a deliberate effort).
