While I was out, much news has broken in our world. Yahoo, for example, launched an experiment called “Search Pad.” From their corporate post:
(Search Pad is) a new feature we’re testing on Yahoo! Search that helps you keep track of websites and take notes whenever you do research online. It intelligently understands when you’re in research mode and, if you choose, collects information about the sites you visit. You can create research documents with saved websites, edit and reorder your personal notes, and share them with friends. No more handwritten scrawls, Post-Its or scattered documents. And you can access them from wherever you are.
Also, a Q&A with the man behind the TweetNews mashup, Vik Singh, architect of the Yahoo! Search BOSS team.
