One of the benefits of working on events like Enterprise Search Europe is that occasionally we get privileged access to new products and services in the community. Inevitably, a proportion of these don’t always live up to the hype, but now and then we do encounter one that has real promise: I’m talking about Martin White‘s Search Circle, which describes itself as “the first subscription information service for managers and developers with responsibility for enterprise search and website search applications“. I’ve seen advance copies of the first issue of Search Log and the first two Search Notes, and they are both well researched, well written, and full of original insights. I am particularly looking forward to the issues on Big Data and Enterprise Search and Enhancing Website Search. Good luck to Martin in this endeavour!
