This blew me away when my colleague Peter Maggs sent it to me. Its simplicity yet seemingly clever results. For years in my work I have sort out the perfect search and clustering has always interested me. Clustering is where the results are clustered under themes or topics according to the meta data (Think library catalogue card info) that is wrapped around the webresource. Really smart ones could search through the text (as google does) but bagtheweb.com does all of this through the most creditible webresources including blogs and other social media sources. Worth a look to present students with a view of another type of search and to challenge and inquire about what they know and understand about the search.
This is not so much about getting fabulous search results but more about starting the discussion around what students know about search – in most cases Google.
