Quintura - visual tag cloud connective search
Yakov Sadchikov wanted to catch up with me at MediaTech2.006 (edublogscom reportage here) and, having seen his product, it was mutual! Quintura allows you to browse related topics to the topic you are searching for - great when you're not too sure what you want to get into. I did a quick search for some East Lothian-related issues and got a great overview of the projects, bloggers, Flickr-ers, courses and websites we run. I tried an ego search and David Warlick came up - what does that say?
The powerful thing? You can save the search cloud you have sought and then refined. This means that we
could probably will set up a really powerful cluster-based model of search within the new East Lothian social media portal and let individuals drill down further from there.
