Powerlabs - the first screenshot
Well, we just sent out our first screen shots of one of our demo search products and we such a response, that I thought I would throw my hat in the mix as well.
After mulling about for a bit, I decided that I wanted to be the first to post a screen shot of Powerlabs (it's a pretty cool screenshot and in my opinion a much sexier screenshot than the search screen shot)
This screenshot is an example from our travel group, one of the categories of search we'll be exploring. We'll also be exploring other categories like entertainment and reference. Within each of these categories, we'll have lots of activities. You'll be able to watch videos explaining the Natural Language concepts that power Powerset, take surveys to help us understand what users want, brainstorm ideas on specific search problems (and vote on them too), enter design competitions where you can suggest search interface ideas and, of course:
get ready......get ready.....
ACTUALLY try out our demo concepts
(note the intential use of s in concept(s))
Over the coming weeks, we'll release more details, but in true Powerset style that's all you get for now.
Hint: Powerlabbers are getting this blog entry 1 hour before I post it (that will be the norm from now on, so sign up if you want the inside scoop) I figured since there is such competition to be the first, I would actually give the Powerlabbers a shot at beating me to it. Each time I will announce who was the actuall first person to post the screenshot. Note: the first screenshot poster contests was won by Jessica Mah and she wins the right to have my voice on her answering machine.
Hint: We may not be launching Powerlabs officially until September, but we will be selecting a small group of people early to give it a test drive.
Hint: We are going to be announcing some pretty interesting stuff over the next couple of weeks. We have been holding back for quite a while and we are brimming with news (double hint: we acquired someone)
Warning: I am making my first video blog (which I will try to do weekly) so you will have to deal with my ugly mug directly. in each video I am going to try to be dirt honest, give you the straight news and I will be announcing important new information.
