Wink launches

Posted in Technology at 5:02 pm by antonello

Another entry into search wars, Wink searches across people-generated tagosphere. Om Malik hits on some of the points I was talking about the other day, namely will users ever catch on to tagging in a major way? He says:

I think it needs a behavioral change on part of “searchers? who have become accustomed to simply typing their queries and then trying to figure out where to go. Sort of like bad cell phone coverage : we go used to it.

His other point about one major drawback with very accurate search, fewer page views & less advertising dollars, is a very important one.  I think Google recognizes this one too, hence the move to add more places where people are exposed to ads (gmail, gmaps, etc.)
