What would it be like if your could search "through" the eyes of another person?
Last night Lijit released our first version of Personal Network Search.
We have been heads down for a month or so on a really cool strategy to make people, their online identities, and the people they know vertically searchable. It’s an amazingly powerful concept. In the following weeks we will review more about this strategy but for now you can try the concept right here on my blog.
In fact anyone can try it on their Blog if they have a Lijit account. First run our identity wizard to grab your other online personas and map them into Lijit, then turn on your Personal Network Search functionality from your Profile page.
Thanks to a cool Typepad integration you can one-click your search wijit onto your blog..
Give it a try and shot me some feedback.. Interesting things to “Search My World” for that demonstrate the power here…
Search “me” for “tivo”
This results in a combination of bookmarks about Tivo that I have made in del.icio.us as well a entries from my blog that talk about Tivo’s.. Also mixed in there will be some hits of PVRBlog that I read on a regular basis..
Search for “Niel SAP”..
I read Niels Blog Parallax and he is the most knowledgable person I know on SAP.
Search for “term sheet”
Returns a wealth of information from multiple sources close to me on building Term Sheets for startups..
