Search people


There are various reasons why you might need to search for people, you may need to find a lost relative, an old flame, a classmate or a business contact - but if you are using a search engine such as Google or Yahoo to search for people, you have probably realized by now that it might work in some cases but in most cases it won't.

How come the best search engines fail so miserably when it comes to people search? The answer lies in a little known but very important part of the web called "deep web".
Also known as "invisible web", the term "deep web" refers to a vast repository of underlying content, such as documents in online databases that general-purpose web crawlers cannot reach. 
Pipl's query-engine helps you find deep web pages that cannot be found on regular search engines.

This is actually a cool idea.. who knows one day you might need this to search your old crush:-) or ur best friend who knows:-)

Human Networking


I was just watching news the other day and there was a debate about what will be the technological trend of the year 2009. And there was this one person who mentioned Human Networking. I was like wat Human Networking???? I have heard of social networking but what is human networking? I wanted to what it is and I immediately googled it and was amazed to know what human networking is.

Human networking is one of the innovative solutions by Cisco Systems,Inc. The human network is generally regarded as a social structure composed of individuals, business partners, friends or other organizations connected through technology, using devices such as PCs, cell phones, PDAs and digital TVs. The human network connects to people in a variety of ways, whether via emotional, cultural, ideological, familial or behavioral ties.
There are different things possible with human networking. You can use your mobile phones to fix your scooter. A video changes everything. This networking technology brings countries, people and culture closer together. It also enforces the "the travel less principle" by means of "Telepresence". TelePresence helps these busy executives meet face to face, without traveling place to place. An Italian businessman travels from New York to China without leaving his neighborhood. All these things are possible on human networking.. I personally feel this will be the trend of 2009.. This is what i have understood:-).

Weaving the world's Photos


The world is beeing digitized through photography at an enormous rate. Aerial imagery,once the domain of GIS is now viewed everyday by people on the web. Photo sharing sites like flickr contain billions of photographs and the process is accelerating as cell phones and cameras merge.

So how best can we make use of these available photos..What special we can bring about them???
The technology of photosynth is to geo locate the photographs and to arrange them as if they were taken in 3D.. For example you have visited the taj mahal and you have lot of pictures associated with Taj Mahal then u can create a synth out of it.It merges common pictures magnifies the detail of the picture... The synth gives u a 3D view of the place..u can navigate through..It gives the feeling of u being in that place... This is what i have understood:-) It is one piece of sweet technology.
