Searching the internet is not new news. Yahoo! and Google yadda yadda yadda… I’m sick of hearing Google this, and Yahoo! that. These search engines search websites that have been posted up oh the topic you’re looking for, and brings them to you. They use a historical database, a retrospective search, they search the past.
PubSub searches the future, and delivers your results however you want them. I set up a free user account and searched my name, an ‘ego feed’ deemed by the presenter. When something new hits the net, and involves my name, PubSub notifies me via email, RSS, instant message, or even a text message to my phone via SMS. Progressive searching they call it. This isn’t a crystal ball for the internet, but it’s about as close as you’re going to get to it. Just another one of the super neato burrito cool beans tools that I uncovered at today’s Under The Radar conference, held in Mountian View, CA.
