Yahoo Is Wooing I.B.M. Technical Talent - New York Times

Yahoo Is Wooing I.B.M. Technical Talent - New York Times: "Yahoo plans to announce Thursday that it is recruiting scientists who pioneered an advanced search-engine technology at I.B.M.'s Silicon Valley research laboratory.
Beginning in the mid-1990's, the researchers at I.B.M. spent several years developing an Internet search engine, called Clever, employing a series of algorithms to improve the quality of the retrieval results. While that project has concluded, the I.B.M. researchers have continued other work in the field."

Kind of weird to see this sort of stuff in the mainstream news; sign of the times...
