Amazon Strikes Again
I know this is about 3 weeks old but I just found out abot it today. This is an editorial piece talking about Amazon's ability to search within a book. I wonder what technology they used to be able to XML all the books up. Or whether or not they even did XML.
I'll dig a little deeper. Apparently they don't use technology to enter the text. It's all users doing the data entry pro bono. That seems like the best way to go. I was hoping they developed some new osmosis tool that would somehow digest the book.
