About this site

For six years, the Internet Nexus served as my technology blog, but I've since started blogging at the SuperSite Blog instead. If you're looking for the blog, please head there. --Paul

Alpha beta

Alpha is a new beta product from Yahoo! that introduces the concept of Federated Search. With Alpha, you can search across many different search indices all on one page. Also, if you have a Yahoo! ID, you can log in to personalise your experience by moving the search sources around to suit you, or adding completely new ones of your own.

This offers a comprehensive search result that's tailored and controlled by you, the searcher!
Interesting. OK, it's yet another search engine. And yeah, it apes the super-clean look of the classic Google site. But I've always wondered why Yahoo wasn't doing better. Maybe this is the start of a comeback.
