Now that the cat is out of the bag, I’m proud to tell readers here about an effort I’ve been involved with over the past few months. As reported in TechCrunch and Search Engine Land,  the Financial Times just launched Newssift, a semantic search engine, powered by Endeca, that sifts through business news. Regular readers may recognize the application from an example I used in my presentation on exploring semantic means.

I’m very excited about the Financial Times embracing exploratory search, and I think Erik Schonfeld from TechCrunch gets it right when he notes that the site “employs several subtle navigational techniques that make it more of a discovery engine than a search engine.”

Sorry to keep you guys in the dark about this for so long, but I hope it was worth the wait.
