LinkedIn now has discussion groups. This is great because a number of representatives from the major federated search companies are members of the LinkedIn federated search group I’ve recently created and can share in conversations. In particular, these major vendors are currently represented:
- Deep Web Technologies
- Ex Libris North America
I’ve got requests out to other vendors to join. Additionally, we have people in the group who don’t work for vendors who have tremendous relevant experience.
So, come join the group, and introduce yourself. Here’s the link to join the group:
When you join the group you may want to click on the setting tab for the group and then click the digest email box, set the delivery frequency to daily or weekly, then click the “save settings” button at the bottom of the form.
I’ve posted an introductory message and would very much welcome your introductions and your questions and thoughts pertaining to federated search. Feel free to start your own discussion thread in the group.
