New Leadership Search Engine

Today, I published a new leadership and executive development search engine on my Learning to Change Business Website. Over the past three years I have been creating this search engine to enable users to more precisely find content related to leadership education.  Google provides the capability to isolate the best sites that I find and target them for the search.   I hope you find it useful!  The search engine is also displayed on this page.

I found this slide deck via Jeff Dirks' post on twitter:  For all of us working in Information Management. Interesting post on Peter Morville's http://www.findability.org: http://twurl.nl/bdarnl that led me to this post on Peter Morville's blog: 

"Architecture for the Information Age

Yesterday, at IUE 2009, Dan Klyn gave a talk called Now That I See It. I really wish I'd been there. It takes a bit of work to recreate the experience, pulling together the slides and the notes and the tweets, but it's absolutely worth it.

As an extra bonus, Dan has posted a short excerpt from his interview with Richard Saul Wurman. I found it surprisingly refreshing and inspiring."

Here is the post that Peter was referring to.  It is a great discussion of the importance on Information Architecture, User Experience and User interface design.  We are deeply indebted to library science for many of the concepts used today in site design.
