Perhaps I could have been more accurate. Barney Pell, the CEO, is actually a close friend of mine. We met when we were graduate students at Cambridge. I've actually taken an early version of the system for a whirl and have a pretty good idea of the vision and the capabilities of what is going to be the next paradigm in search.

Sounds interesting. If there is any possibility of getting an invite to a closed beta of it, if they do that at some point, I would very much enjoy seeing it. Thanks, Matt.


natural language would indeed be a breakthrough but this raises a question about data mining and scalability. it would work if, for example, every web developer uses microformats, but we all know the web is not semantic.

and i have to say it is hard to believe that there is an algorithm that would automatically sort things out.
