Possibly the most exciting post for me was from Oliver Marks at ZDNet . Here is a company that is thinking outside the box and developing an alternate interface for search on the internet; it involves returning results based on aggregate sets of information. Freebase Parallax is a fascinating peak into the future and it utilizes the strongest attributes to browse and explore data, a sort of marriage between Google and Wikipedia. This article has been placed under the Google section because I predict they will quickly snatch up this company and its revolutionary approach.
“Still technically in alpha, Freebase will be the underpinnings of many future companies – some would say this approach is the future of the entire Internet.
“It’s built by the community and for the community – free for anyone to query, contribute to, build applications on top of, or integrate into their websites – basically an open database of the world’s information.”
