Talk at Kiberpipa: The State of the Web Search

Over the past 15 years web search has become a 20 billion dollars industry. But web has evolved in this time and consequently also the web search is going through some big changes at the moment. Social recommendations are gaining in importance, mobile is rising, and Google is no longer just a proxy, but increasingly also a destination. Implications for users, content creators, SEO industry (including Zemanta), and Google itself will be momentous. To discuss all these changes I'm inviting you to Kiberpipa on Wednesday, November 7th at 19:00. I'll present you with some fresh information and insights about the state of the web search that I've acquired at SIGIR in Portland that was attended by some of the most important people in search industry. I wish for an open discussion, so come with your arguments sharpened!
