"Meet the Speaker" Interview for Enterprise Search Europe

April 30th, 2013 — 10:12am

I did a mod­est ‘meet the speaker’ inter­view with the orga­niz­ers of next month’s Enter­prise Search Europe con­fer­ence in Lon­don — it’s pub­lished here:

Here’s an excerpt:

It turns out that you can use a very sim­ple vocab­u­lary to spot and describe com­plex pat­terns in search­ing and sense mak­ing behav­iour, pat­terns that tran­scend typ­i­cal bound­aries like domain of use. You can also design solu­tions using the vocab­u­lary; from the inter­ac­tion design of work­spaces, to the var­i­ous data mod­els and infor­ma­tion struc­tures that under­lie your sys­tem. This com­bi­na­tion of ana­lyt­i­cal and gen­er­a­tive uses is unusual, and I wanted to share it.

And if you’re in the neigh­bor­hood of Lon­don May 13 — 17, and would like to con­nect to talk about search, dis­cov­ery, or related top­ics, ping me — I’d like to meet up with some new folks for my first visit to Lon­don in a few years.
