When Google was starting out they didn’t constant issue press releases about how much better they were than AltaVista. They just put themselves out there and people realized they were better. The rest is history.
Not so with Powerset, a natural language search engine. Given the fact that you can’t even try their product yet, they seem to be in a state of perpetual hype, including their appearance today at the TechCrunch40. If you’re seriously better guys, then stop telling me you are and show me.
Natural language searching sounds like a great idea, but the truth is that over half of searchers use one- or two-word queries, hardly the stuff of natural language. And Google does an admirable job when you type in a natural language query already.
