Lycos partners?
Is this new?

Maybe I'm confused but I had thought Lycos was using Dmoz, Direct Hit and Fast for their results.

Now I see at the bottom of the Lyco search results: Dmoz, Fast and Intelliseek. Is Intelliseek new? What's the scoop?

Brad, Hotbot has been partnered with LexiQuest for quite a while, which if I'm not mistaken uses a technology to determine contextual validity in searches.

I'm assuming that this does the same. From the Intelliseek [cyc.com] site:

"powered by an immense multi-contextual knowledge base and an efficient inference engine. The knowledge base is built upon a core of over 1,000,000 hand-entered assertions (or "rules") designed to capture a large portion of what we normally consider consensus knowledge about the world."

Sounds like this would help in determining whether, for example, the word "string" is referring to what a package is tied with, or a string of text.
