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.

Thats one guy that knows what he is talking about. This could mean good things for the web search world.

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

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.

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