Yahoo Social Search Beta

I'm not going to comment on Yahoo's new beta social search until I've had a chance to play with it further, but in the meantime checkout Ross Mayfield's post on the Many-to-Many blog for an overview of where it has come from and where he thinks it is going.

He concludes "this is a very big thing. A clear watermark of social infrastructure being developed upon physical infrastructure. I'm not apologetic for calling it a new kind of web, and I think my friends will too. The great promise, of course, is for non-bloggers to annotate the web."

Stowe Boyd also provides good commentary and provides a link through to Yahoo's own blog post about their new search system(?).

And if you found this interesting, have a look at OutFoxed (also in beta) who provide their perspective on the next stage of internet search. OutFoxed is a way "to use your network of trusted friends to determine what's good, bad, and dangerous on the internet. Outfoxed does this by adding functionality to the Firefox web browser."
