Q: What’s Hot in the Search Space?
A: Just about Everything!  

Innovation continues in the Search market, at both the Consumer and Enterprise levels. New ideas continue to emerge at a frantic pace, especially in the contextualized "vertical" search and social network spaces, including of course the recent Facebook announcement about building their own semantic search function. Likewise, in the enterprise, comprehensive cross-platform, cross-boundary findability remains the goal. And meanwhile, for both markets, the "Deep Web" is the next frontier, with numerous start-ups jostling to be at the forefront.
