Abstract – Comments on Steinberg’s Article

Mulvany, N. (1996). Comments on Steinberg’s Article about Web Indexing. Available at: http://www.bayside-indexing.com/wired.html

“Seek and Ye Shall Find (Maybe)” provides an overview of the state of information classification and retrieval on the Web. Although Steinberg discusses classification and provides detailed discussion of several web services that deal with information, the article is not about indexing as most indexers understand the practice. One must concede that the internet has changed the face of information classification and retrieval mechanisms. At the same time, however, it is a dreadful proposition that one day the primary readers of material will be search engines. Automatic text processing methods may be inevitable but their severe shortcomings must be addressed.

    This seems to be a combination of abstract and comment. If it is a comment, I’d like it to be a more personal reaction. If it is an abstract you don’t need to mention the title and author.

      Whoops. I read this wrong — went to fast. I didn’t realize that it was the abstract for the comments article. I thought it was your comments. My apologies. My eyes are and mind are getting bleary.
