Behavior Patterns
Design Patterns
A few good starting points suggested by humans.
 
 
Because users don’t know where to look.
 
 
Multiple ways to search (and browse) in combination.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Search Metrics  (Endeca) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Because little things make a big difference.
 
 
Structured Results
 
Social Search
 
 
Media Search Cool tools for finding music, images, video, and other non-text formats.  Most rely on keyword search, but some allow users to query by shape, texture, color, sound, and other inherent properties of the objects they seek.
 
 
 
 
Mobile Search
Spime Search WineM A smart wine rack that uses RFID to track bottles in the rack and identify ones that fit the selection criteria.  Collectors and restaurants can use WineM racks to search collections The wine can be dynamically reorganized by any combination of year, region, price, etc. A handheld device accepts queries, and full-color LED lights transform the rack and bottles into a search results interface. The system even supports faceted navigation.
Cisco Wireless  Location Appliance “ A quick glance at the  screen shows exactly where the tagged wheelchairs are located...Patients wait no  more than a few minutes  for a wheelchair, and we  save   $28,000 a month   by eliminating searches.”
