There’s a wonderfully informative interview with Ask.com’s Gary Price on SearchEngineWatch.com, in which you’ll learn all about Gary (editor of Resource Shelf and DocuTicker) and Ask.com , which I consider to be the search engine that librarians should be using when on the job (and at home, if you’re like me).  If you haven’t used Ask.com in a while, take it for a test-drive.  I guarantee you’ll be impressed with all of the features and information-rich results.

The latest issue of Business Week includes an interview with Mena Trott, co-creator of Movable Type and Typepad.  From the interview:

…blogs are all about capturing and preserving information about our lives. And that makes me think of what might be the biggest future blog-design challenge: How do we design blogs that will archive and present 20 years worth of content?

Good to see someone with some power thinking about the long term preservation and archival issues for blogs!

“Interview with Six Apart’s Mena Trott”

  1. Dorothea Says:

    Drat it, the FIRST THING Mena Trott could do to make blogs archivable is loosen the rights on the blog designs so that someone like, say, ME can ARCHIVE THEM!

    Grrrrrrrr. Will blog this.

  2. Sarah Houghton (LiB) Says:

    Absolutely important. I’ve actually contact MT about that issue more than once. Perhaps if they hear enough voices, something will change.

  3. Dorothea Says:

    Suggest contacting someone like Mena or Anil Dash directly. Bypass 6A’s bureaucracy; I’ve contacted them too and they’re useless, a textbook example of Not Getting It.

Scoble talks about where Microsoft’s search engine technology is headed in this Search Engine Guide article. The most interesting part of it for me was the discussion of hard drive searching which (Scoble admits) currently sucks. He also discusses blog searching and improved photo searching. Good interview, good information.
