Between Search and Serendipity

January 3, 2007

Google is great at what it does, that is, search for something specific enough, and in most cases, you’ll probably get it.

But what’s missing is that element of browsability.  Pick up a book, and have a flick through it – you’ll pick out key elements.

How often have you gone to a bookstore looking for one thing and buying something unrelated?

So be careful for what you search for … you might actually get it.
