Danny Sullivan on Microsoft's Live Search

Danny Sullivan wrote up a version of a talk he gave at Microsoft in June 2008 in his recent post, "Tough Love for Microsoft Search".

Danny Sullivan is an insightful writer, long-time watcher of the search industry, and founder of Search Engine Watch, Search Engine Land, and the popular Search Engine Strategies (SES) conference. His thoughts are well worth reading.

Greg, glad to see people at Microsoft are listening to him. Though I wonder if the people who are listening are the people he cites as "the same people within Microsoft who are so diligently trying to succeed are let down by a company culture overall that sees the internet and search in particular as a kind of sideshow." I'm curious to hear an insider's perspective, if that isn't crossing the line.

Live search is my default engine. But my heart skips a beat when it goofs up on the simplest of searches, that a CS researcher would put in.

Rajiv, what is the appeal of Live Search?
