A new search engine called Groxis is detailed in this New York Times [nytimes.com] artcle is set to launch soon. It features a visual interface.

The most interesting quote from the article:

At Stanford, the library has modified its online Socrates catalog system to be viewed by Grokker. "It shows sufficient promise that we're thinking of giving it to our entire community," said Michael Keller, the university librarian. "Potentially, it will not only give our students and faculty a way to view their own information world but also our wildly multifarious array of thousands of e- journals and hundreds of databases."

That sounds like pretty neat stuff. Could be very good.

What interests me most is that the software can be used to automatically classify such a multitude of data...can't wait to see how it really works.

What's a Web Thumbnail?
[pcmag.com...]
A very brief article about Allison Woodruff from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center and her research using Web Thumbnails. From the article, "What we do with our Web Thumbnails is return a set of small screenshots of the pages themselves, and if you click on one of the pictures, it takes you to the page, just as a Web link would. Keywords within the picture are blown up to large size in the thumbnail view, so you can get a feel for how relevant the document's text is to your search."

rubble88,

those are some cool links to play around with...one to flag

How about having your own navigation as Inxight Star Tree presents it.

I signed up for the 'announcement' and their product is now available for sale...no preview, no trial version it looks like.

I'm not going to shell out that much till I know I need it & I'll use it...anybody here have any hands on experience they'd like to share?
