Wink & Web 2.0 Search Panel


Web 2.0: Looking for new ideas in search
is a short rundown on new entries
into the search space talking at the Web 2.0 conference this week.

Search Panel – Web 2.0
from ClickZ covers the same panel. Both focus mainly
on Wink is a
tag-based search engine and backing TagCamp to help create a standard tagging
taxonomy. PubSub also talked of wanting to have more standard ways to structure
information.

In case you missed it, tags were hot but don’t seem to be as hot as in the
past, as the problems with tagging that anyone should have expected have cropped
up. But now "camps" are hot in the wake of
FooCamp and
BarCamp (for those not lucky enough to be
invited to FooCamp) and campish-Web. 2.1.
So add some camp to your tags, and they’re hot again!

Actually, camps sound pretty cool. I want to do SearchCamp, except it would
be for kids, teaching them to search better.
