George Orwell didn't specifically mention enterprise search in his visionary book 1984 , but he made a statement that still resonates today. When it comes to relevant search query results, "it's not about the statistics." Sanity comes from the human element. Until recently, this concept was mostly ignored by enterprise search solutions. Instead, search was based on text-matching algorithms and models that methodically sifted through link structures or categorization schemes.

great article

Scott, great article. I do hope you can make it to the HCIR '08 workshop in October, which is all about bringing the human into the problems of search and information retrieval. And of course this is what I talk about all the time on my blog.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
