Alternative Search Engines Day – Call For Alts to Band Together

first_imgI’m at the Alternative Search Engines Day, in San Francisco, an event put on by our network blog AltSearchEngines. We started out with a keynote talk by ASE editor Charles Knight, who noted that alternative search engines only have about 1.7% market share combined. He thinks this is too small, so he wants all of the “alts” – you can see a list of them on our subsite The Search Race – to band together to make a bigger impact on the search market. Charles discussed current aggregation approaches such as Sputtr, which puts multiple search engines onto one page (see screenshot below), but he also outlined a vision for a Virtual World for alt search engines.SputtrCharles pointed out that although Sputtr is a great app, it is difficult for mainstream users to grok. For one thing ordinary users won’t know how to make sense of all the logos. Also people outside the tech industry will not know many of the brands of the smaller search companies. So Charles suggested that a virtual world approach could be the answer, whereby different alt search engines are represented in a 3D world according to the type of search they provide. For example if you are looking for a job, then there will be a virtual representation of this in the 3D world and a number of job search engines available to meet that need.This “federated search” approach, as someone in the audience termed it, is one way for the hundreds of small search startups to increase their overall market share. Another approach is to create a common platform for alts, using APIs and UI standards (suggested over lunch to me by Morgan Snyder from allth.at).Also on the opening discussion panel were myself, Nitin Karandikar from The Software Abstractions Blog, and Henrick Kac from BlogDimension. Nitin recently wrote a post entitled Cooperation of Alt Search Engines: A Manifesto (original here), which outlined 5 possibilities for alts to cooperate – e.g. “Search Federations of complementary ASEs”.Opening panel, photo by Boris Veldhuijzen van ZantenConclusionThe overarching theme to AltSearchEngines Day is to encourage the alts to band together and help each other reach the mainstream audience. Anyone who regularly reads AltSearchEngines will know that there is a ton of innovation in search, literally hundreds of niche and vertical search startups. So this effort to join together to compete with (or complement) the likes of Google and Microsoft is very commendable – and as I mentioned in the panel, ReadWriteWeb heartily supports it.Special thanks to Charles Knight for the vision and pulling this day together, and also LA Lassek and the SeeqPod team for organizing the event. Thanks as well to the sponsors of this event: SeeqPod, UpTake, HealthPricer, MatchPoint, GoPubMed, BlogDimension.When I was doing the intros at the start, I noted that Charles is “the voice of alternative search engines” in this industry. He really is galvinising and leading the alts forward as a group. Be sure to subscribe to AltSearchEngines to track this initiative.

IT Sustainability – Energy Use in the Office Proof of Concept Starts, again!

first_imgBy the way, I hope to release an external paper fully covering the project and results in early Q3. In my late April post, I announced the start of our Energy Use in the Office proof of concept.  We had deployed a third party tool that collects PC energy usage information to about 1000 systems in one of our office buildings and had begun a 30 day baseline period.  Unfortunately, we ran in to some technical issues and had to uninstall the agent and redesign the PoC a bit.I’m happy to announce the PoC was restarted again this Monday! It’s too early to share any potential change in energy use with you but I can tell you people are looking at the screens.  Stay tuned for another update with some initial results in a couple of weeks. In the new design, two kiosks displays have been installed in one of our office buildings that display energy use in the office charts in total and by floor.  Each floor also has a kWh per employee score.  The charts are displayed in an hourly view for the current day as well as a daily view for the past two weeks.  Pre-PoC Baselines are also provided for both the total and floor kWh charts and kWH per employee score. -Mike BretonIT Technology Evangelistlast_img read more

Benzema and Ronaldo fire Los Blancos four points clear of Barcelona

first_imgReal Madrid extended their lead at the top of La Liga by four points with a 2-0 win over Elche, in what was a scrappy, physical affair at the Estadio Martinez Velero stadium in Elche.Real Madrid dominated the first half and created chances but were held scoreless due to some poor finishing by the forwards like Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale. The second half though, was entirely different as Benzema and Ronaldo scored to place Madrid in a very strong position. Benzema tapped in a weak Ronaldo-cross which was deflected by Pezemyslaw Tyton, the Elche goal keeper in Benzema’s path. The second goal was a majestic header by the reigning Ballon d’Or holder Ronaldo who powered the into-the-top corner from a Isco cross.This win also marked a milestone for the Real Madrid coach as this was his 100th match at the helm of Real. The win also marked a historical achievement for Iker Casillas as he recorded a clean-sheet in his 500th league match. Carlo Ancelotti did not make any changes to the line up which featured against Schalke with Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo upfront in attack, Isco, Toni Kroos and Lucas Silva in midfield and the back line formed of Pepe, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, Dani Carvajal in front of Iker Casillas.This was a productive week for Real as their rivals Barcelona slumped to a 0-1 defeat on their home turf in Camp Nou. Next up for Real Madrid is a home match against Villarreal the yellow submarine on March 2, 2015 at 1:30 am IST. After that they pay a visit to Athletic Bilbao on March 7, 2015 at 10:30 pm IST.advertisementLa Liga 2014-15 Standings Top 3 Teams : TeamsGames playedWonDrawnLostGoals forGoals againstGoal differencePointsReal Madrid24200474225260Barcelona FC24182467145356Atletico Madrid24172550222853last_img read more
