FirstGov Switches to Vivisimo & MSN

FirstGov, the official U.S. government information and services portal, will soon be powered by Vivisimo and MSN Search. Since 2002, FirstGov has been powered by Norway’s FAST, but the switch was apparently made not to get homegrown technology but rather because the new deal provides more services at less cost. Gary Price has more about the new arrangement in today’s SearchDay article, Vivisimo and MSN to Power FirstGov.
