  1. So I take it you’ll be heading down here for BayCHI next week when Ramana speaks at the monthly meeting?

  2. Hello,
    my name is Kirill Vyatchin, I’m an interaction designer from Ukraine.

    I have a favour to ask of you, would you please fix your RSS export. Now it shows only fragment of each entry.

    Just replace “MTEntryExcerpt” with “MTEntryBody” in the “description” tag of your RSS-template.

  3. ramana provides insight no other blogger does. Additionally inxight is one to watch in the search, information, and knowledge management spaces.

  4. Yes, Inxight is indeed a very interesting company. Specially now that they have changed direction from being a toolkit provider to sell complete solutions directly to end-users.

    The growing interest for “information flow” is in my view a symptom of inadequate search solutions. I think that we need to move “beyond search” and explore other means of digesting information. Text Mining and textual analysis are good examples of such areas – here old timer IBM with their $100 million web mining project WebFountain is bound to raise some eyebrows when they finally are stepping out of the Almaden Research Center.
