Finding what you want on the web "Debbie is a trained librarian, and it shows. She understands that a single search engine is never going to do everything, no matter how good its indexing or how large its database."

"I do not think we will ever solve the search problem until we move away from the dumb web we have today towards something like the semantic web, a project that Sir Tim Berners-Lee has been pushing ever since the first web conference in 1994.

Once links carry meaning then it will become more of a distributed database than the vast heap of unstructured documents we have built so far.

And once we have a database then we can classify, index and search it properly."
