searching developments

Check out oScope, a neat visual search engine that pulls together images from Amazon, Flickr, and other places in a really nifty way. It’s a bit slow – a victim of its own success – but oh so cool.

And thanks to a hot tip from a fellow RAMmer – the Times has finally confirmed the rumor first reported in the New York Post. No more Times Select! Apparently they’ll make more money if they don’t restrict access to subscribers. (Duh!)

Finally, if you’re in the mood for a spy thriller, check out the new briefing book at the National Security Archive on the Pentagon’s counterintelligence activities and the TALON database they built. That’s right, the one that a few weeks ago they dropped so they can build a better one.
