I'm Google dependent, just like all the rest of you. But I heard about a new search function that's going live today, and I've been checking it out. (Full Disclosure: I heard from a friend here in D.C. who's involved in promoting this search.) The name is catchy--Dumbfind. It doesn't replace Google, and it takes some getting used to, but it seems to allow for better sifting of results for those who know exactly what they're looking for through the use of tags that organize the content, as explained here and here. As a bunch of science geeks, I figured that some of you folks might want to give it a try. Let me know how it works for you.
