Thanks for all the feedback on the new design. We’re going to push it live this Sunday night and keep tweaking it, there were a ton of good suggestions and we can’t get them all in at once. I prefer to launch and iterate, rather than try to get everything perfect.
Secondly, I am going to work on two pieces of writing this week. Both will probably be posted in full at the Future of Search site, but I’ll summarize them here as well. The first will be a rumination on what the future might look like if a major like Microsoft of Yahoo opened its index fully (for a tiny bit of background, read this), and the second will be roughly titled “Is the Future of Search About Getting Paid?” That one will be my thoughts on Microsoft’s recent news and its deeper implications.
So if you have thoughts on either, let me know!
