Broadening Search: Is Google Enough?

My latest technology column for the ABA Journal is out. It’s called “Broadening Search” and it focuses on shortcomings people are finding with an over-reliance on Google search and covers some alternatives to Google for certain types of searching.
As I like to say, “The next generation of search is arriving, if you know where to find it.”
In the column, I recommend that you assemble a toolbox of search tools and then choose the best tool for the job at hand.
I introduce you to tools you might want to learn more about: from Bing to Twitter Search to specialized search tools to Rollyo to Dogpile to Mahalo to Sensebot. I wanted to sketch out how broad the search landscape really is.
As I say in the article, “I worry, as should you, that a total reliance on Google will give you a limited or distorted view of the Web. You want to choose the best tools for the job at hand. It’s a new generation. Try out a few new search tools today and compare the results.”
The details about the tipsse tools are in the article, of course, which you should now check out here.
