The next Search SIG is May 8th at Google. The topic is People Search. The panel includes Wink and Spock, and ZoomInfo. Michael Arrington will be the moderator. It should be a great discussion about the hot, new, and burgeoning vertical search category of people search.

The Panel:
Michael Tanne - CEO Wink

Jaideep Singh - CEO Spock

Bryan Burdick - COO ZoomInfo

The hype:

* 30% of all searches on Google or Yahoo! are for specific people or people related.
* Marge Simpson “googled” herself for the first time on the latest episode of The Simpsons
* Is there room for a smart new company to take the place of a general search engine to provide better and more accurate results for people queries?
* What’s more important… the head or the tail?
* What about disambiguation? How can that be achieved?
* How does the concept of identity management play in to all of this?
* more more more!

Come and join us…
