| Rethinking The Search Metaphor »
I really like the vision behind this interface to the blogosphere that the six Twingly interns are working on. It manages to push all the right buttons: blogosphere, graphs, zoomable interfaces and fun.

Fun idea, it kind of fits in with the "google earth" perspective, and probably is oriented to a much more visually pleasing and tactile interface. I happen to *like* network graphs, but their interface will probably never be feasible, because it would require search engines to maintain (or create on the fly) network graphs of the entire blogosphere. I also question the value in picking which search result to follow based upon graphics, even if the graph can color/size blog nodes based on some search criteria. A search is inherently semantic, not visual - although I am interested in hybrid approaches like kartoo.com.
