SIG Session on Alternate Search: tagging, bookmarking and social sharing – Jan 10, 2006 at Yahoo HQ

December 22, 2005

Before everyone disappears on holidays, here is a quick pre-announcement regarding the January session of the Search SIG, which should take place on Jan 10th (though the date is not 100% confirmed) and will be hosted by our friends from Yahoo at their headquarter in Sunnyvale.

The theme of the session will be Alternate Search, and will cover the mechanisms developed over the past 12 months to create new ways of indexing and discovering information: tagging, bookmarking,… shared amongst friends or communities.

Charlene Li has kindly agreed to be the moderator of the event, that will involved Wink’s Michael Tanne, Kaboodle’s Manish Chandra and a few other executives who have not confirmed yet.



January Search SIG: Tagging & al

December 18, 2005

As most of you have now figured out, the Search SIG has taken a break in December because Dave and I were both busy with a number of things, and we did not find the time to organize our usual event. We are now planning the January session which will be focusing on Tagging. We will publish more information in the coming days about who, where, when, etc.

Until then… Happy Holidays!
