HTMLfixIT Archive for the ‘Search Engines’ Category

Tuesday, January 17th, 2006 by Don

I came onto this site today that promises a different look at the news. It says things are published on Swoogle, a semantics search engine. Only thing is that they appear to have borrowed their look color and design features from elsewhere and Swoogle has a familiar ring to it as well.

Who knows what they mean? I don’t when they say really key stuff like:

The extracted meaning from the RSS descriptions of the news articles are then converted into Semantic Web representation such as RDF. This is also stored in a Redland Triple store and lets users perform semantic queries over the documents. This enables them to search for information that would otherwise not be easy to find using simple keyword based search. It also makes available important and live new related automatically extracted meta-data and semantics to agents by publishing it in RDF.

Trust me as soon as I figure out, I’ll let you know.

I guess the little guy tuckered out pretty quick. He is gone and the regular logo is back. Google Doodle #10 looked promising, but I thought it ran out of steam on the last day to be honest. Maybe it is more my disappointment with the pastel finish instead of with the concept itself. I await the next doodle …

Well it appears there is a problem …. the cords won’t reach. What to do? It appears the mouse is on it as day four of the doodle hits us. Typical of a dog, the lazy thing is just watching …

Here is a post about some of Googles other holiday decorating including a track Santa feature.

This post makes me wonder does the doodle release worldwide at the same time, or is it released around the globe at a set time locally.

It now appears that the cat and mouse have put aside their instinctive differences to work together towards powering up the name Google in the logo. Where is this doodle going? We’ll find out more tomorrow.

Well we are on day two of Google Doodle #10. Overnight a cat appeared in the image and is about to get plugged in by the mouse who has the business end of an extension cord in his hands. Do we know these Tom and Jerry(ish) characters? Don’t you think they missed an opportunity to put the cats tail into the “g”?

You can see an archive of Google Doodles, and other Holiday Logos used on Google over the years. My all time favorite is still Google Doodle #7.

That reminds me, I should dig out our holiday logo. We are late this year … but then I just put up lights outside my house yesterday as well. I will leave them up for all 12 days of Christmas, so they will get some play time anyway.

One of my favorite reads is Mike Industries Blog. While scooting around that site today, I came accross a post about intellegent 404 pages — hidden on a page about naming/extensionless url addresses. That got me thinking, is that really a helpful feature? We already have a search function and we happen to think or structure of presentation is pretty clear (of course you may disagree). Thoughts? Leave us a comment.

This is interesting, Google to be discussed in roundtable format for a week. Google truly has many irons in the fire as the old saying goes. This should make for an intriguing follow.
