Oingo have done some research on the market breakup of Domain Names
here [researchbuzz.com].

There is also a link to explain what they did and how they did it. Interesting!

Research Buzz comes through again.

The actual Oingo Report [corp.oingo.com].

I really like that Oingo Whois at Domain Sense [demo.oingo.com].

Oingo Linguist looks very similar to the term vector technology, IHMO. Assigning a "vector" number to a given term, once its meaning has been determined. As a surfer, I love Oingo. As an SEO, I hate it. It kinda makes most of what we do obsolete, relying on assigned meaning rather than text strings and placement. I am of course assuming that there is no "spider" assigning these Meaning-IDs. This information would be valuable. If indeed there are humans doing all the assigning of Meaning-IDs, their job is daunting at best, at least to process enough data to be helpful to the average user.
The current Oingo is using ODP with their technology applied, starting with data neatly categorized by humans - a great head start on any "meaning-based" tehcnology.
I'm going to keep my eye on this.
