Aug 04, 2005: Another QotD

Steve Arnold, writing on enterprise search in the latest CMS Watch: "The truth is that nothing associated with locating information is cheap, easy, or fast."

Au contraire Steve; I've been known to be cheap, easy, and occasionally fast. Anyway, Steve's article is well worth a read both for the trends and Steve's observations.

Another Arnold quote, this of the "how many more times will people have to hear it" variety: "...the enterprise search community is turning full circle or rediscovering what indexers have known since scrolls were rolled as pushed into clay tubes at Ephesus. Humans and human-like processes are needed to supplement or do certain types of taxonomy development, indexing, classification and analysis." Right on, man.
