Researchers, fire up those bookmarks, looks like Microsoft are moving up a gear in the search space.

For the slackers two words, Marc Najork, follow [and track back] from there.

That guy has a pretty impressive resume. Hopefully he can help MSN become a more legitimate player in the game.

The newly expanded MSN Search team is working on indexing the entire internet and returning best-of-class results to search queries.


An ability to work closely with Microsoft Research

An overall knowledge of search engines is a plus and knowledge of query and intent recognition technologies

Also, if Najork is part of this project, which I am sure he is, I wonder if Breadth-first is in action with this newborn crawl by MSN. I guess it just depends on if or how far that went with Mercator and if any of it is exclusively tied to AltaVista.

Breadth-first search crawling yields high-quality pages [www10.org]

I can't wait to see how this turns out. I'm thinking all kinds of bells and whistles attached.
