Powerset Search Could this change the way we view Optimiation? Propools msg:3454009 4:57 pm on Sep 18, 2007 (gmt 0)
Powerset, an ambitious start-up that aims to let people search the Web using conversational speech instead of just keywords, began opening up its site on Monday for public testing of the technology. - from Reuters [ ] powerset.com
Kind of seems like semantics on steroids. Could this change the way we view Optimiation?

Only if it gets as big as Google.
And their claim is neither new nor unique.
Is it a new search engine, or an email harvester? So far the jury is out. Even wikipedia has a only dead link to show for it!
I tried a semantic search on Google - [why is a beta site using viral marketing already?] - but conversational search just found the same old texts on viral marketing that powerset probably used.
See these threads too:
And there's a few more.
Perhaps they should set up a viral marketing agency ;)
