Search 2.0 vs Traditional Search, Part 2
Google Labs Relaunches With Two New Must-See Projects Google Labs, the company's experimental playground where users can test out new features, has been quiet lately with the exception of Gmail Labs.

Today, they announced a relaunched Google Labs, moving it to a new domain and rebuilding it on Google App engine.
There are several semantic sources that can be found in the Web that are either explicit, e.g. Wikipedia, or implicit, e.g. derived from Web usage data. Most of them are related to user generated content (UGC) or what is called today the Web 2.0. In this talk we show several applications of mining the wisdom of crowds behind UGC to improve search. We will show live demos to find relations in the Wikipedia or to improve image search as well as our current research in the topic. Our final goal is to produce a virtuous data feedback circuit to leverage the Web itself. Mining the Web 2.0 for Better Search
Enterprise collaboration company Jive Software posted today about a theory it's advancing on the rise of XMPP (called Jabber in IM) for powering communication services hosted in the cloud. The company also announced that it will include what it says will be the first XMPP-powered document sharing and collaboration tool in the forthcoming 2.0 release of its product Clearspace.

Could Instant Messaging (XMPP) Power the Future of Online Communication?

The Best Places To Learn Web 2.0 Basics — 2007 When it comes to technology, I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer (not to mention being sort of a Luddite). I need things very, very simple.
