Meatware based search

One the most powerful uses of the large forum we had within the BBC was as a way of finding information. Being able to ask tens of thousands of staff where to find the information you needed and say why you needed it and then having people suggest documents which from their perspective met your need and point to them with a URL was very powerful. Contextual colour and human interpretation trump technology based search every time.

Interesting to see people talking of Twitter as a Google killer in this context.
