Ah, thanks, I had thought that my query was lost in the FoRK stream; yet
another neglected piece of flotsam jetsam in the electronic noise of
widely distributed mailing list exchanges.
In the meantime, I have become reacquainted with meta-search engines
such as metacrawler.com, dogpile.com and
kartoo.com has an interesting interface that shows the intertwingling of
pages as well as other (non-search) keywords that they share.
Pre-google, my favorite search engine was metacrawler but I have used it
too little in recent years. . . it is nice to see that they haven't gone
away. The meta-search approach is intriguing and ripe for new methods of
ranking, etc. to be developed.
Personally, I find it compelling simply because it prevents breaks
Googles' practice of logging IP addresses associated with searches. :-)
