Anyone seen http://www.hakia.com? It's a new style of searching that tries to contextually match what you're looking for. For instance, I asked it, "What is Lindsay Lohan's middle name?" and the first result gave it. I then decided to kick it square in the whozitswhatsits and asked "Who is [name of my coworker]?" It immediately came back with every webpage they've had in the past 5 years - including old ultrasounds and all kinds of stuff. I didn't find much of a web presence for myself, but that was astounding enough that I wanted to see if anyone else here knew about it?

They plan to launch their version 1.0 by the end of 2007. Right now they are still in beta testing. I'm not impressed at all. I asked several questions and they did not get one right.
