I Want Search Everywhere.

Microsoft and Technologizer partner Federated Media have launched BingTweets, a sort of mashup of Twitter trends and Microsoft’s search engine. The site also includes some blog posts about where search is going, and I agreed to contribute a few of ’em in the coming weeks. The first one’s up–I called it “Towards Persistent, Pervasive Search,” and it’s about the power of having access to search tools everywhere you go. I may be the only person on the planet who wears his phone on a lanyard around his around his neck, and that’s one reason why: The more quickly and easily I can get answers to any question that pops into my head, the smarter I feel. I don’t even want to have to fish in my pocket for my iPhone or remove it from a belt clip.

I dunno if lanyarded phones will ever catch on–if so, it’ll be the first time I’ve ever been on the leading edge of a fashion trend–but I am utterly convinced that in the long run, searching for stuff on phones and other mobile devices will change the world at least as much as doing so from a browser on a PC ever did…
