One-On-One: OneRiot's Tobias Peggs
Dave Harry interviews Tobias Peggs about real-time search, which Peggs defines as searching on a topic and getting the "right results for right now." So, if you're searching on the word "Iran," the "right results" would include news through still photos, videos and blogs that provide information on events happening at the moment.
When asked to list the networks OneRiot crawls and monitors, Peggs points to Twitter and Digg, along with several others he's "unable to disclose." OneRiot also indexes Compete.com and other Internet measuring services that have opted in to share information in real time.
