Jeremy Zawodny provides an excellent "unofficial transcript" of the "Search as a Platform" panel at the Web 2.0 Conference. The panel consisted of:
+ Steve Berkowitz (Ask Jeeves)
+ Udi Manber (a9)
+ Louis Monier (eBay)
+ Christopher Payne (MSN)
+ Jeff Weiner (Yahoo)
+ Google was a no-show.
Thanks JZ! This is a must read. Plenty to think about. Comments soon.
