Ken Moss, former General Manager of Microsoft Search Team has co-founded the soon to be launched (today?) CrowdEye Twitter search service. His work at Microsoft includes starting and leading the Bing (a.k.a. MSN Search, a.k.a. Live Search) technical team starting in 2003.
What is CrowEye?
A blurb from the websites “under construction” about us page, says:
Real time … Social … Search …
That’s what those of us at CrowdEye are obsessed with. The internet has been evolving for years into a place where information flows quicker and quicker. Now it is becoming increasingly possible to tap into that stream of bits and bytes and use it to draw conclusions and make informed decisions based on the “wisdom of the crowds”.
Twitter is a phenomenon. Its growth is a genuine hockey-stick. It’s everywhere from Oprah to the front page of Time Magazine, and countless Hollywood celebrities are using it. Together with sites like Facebook and MySpace, it forms the core of today’s “social web.” CrowdEye is happy to be part of a thriving ecosystem growing out from this core.
CrowdEye is a new generation of search engine which looks at the worldwide web in a new way. By tracking discussions on Twitter, we can help our users find out what’s important to them right now in real time. CrowdEye has created innovative technology to scan through tweets, retweets, twitter links and more. We then provide you with powerful yet easy ways to slice, dice, summarize and categorize the data to answer your questions. Whether you’re interested in following your brand, baseball, celebrities, movies, or anything else people are talking about – CrowdEye can help you know what people are thinking.
Welcome to CrowdEye — a powerful, custom-built social search engine.
There you go, another Twitter search engine which is set to be launced, hopefully right after this post:)
What do you think? Will this service stand out. Don’t we all have enough of Search Engines already? This remains to be seen.
