Microsoft Search - Is MSN Search the New Kid in Town? NFFC msg:1539287 8:46 pm on Jun 17, 2003 (gmt 0) 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. mack msg:1539289 9:13 pm on Jun 17, 2003 (gmt 0)

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

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.
