That Would Be Highway61.com
One of the first meta-search engines on the web has returned ...
Testing now ... please be patient with the links.
We will win awards for quality and usability, just not now.
Presents the Internet Open Highway Project
Highway61.com is listed as one of the most popular
metasearch engines in the All-in-One Search Pages site listings
of Yahoo.com. As you know, Yahoo is the web's most popular
Highway61.com can be found
here, listed highly among million dollar companies,
by our second favorite search engine, Google.com. We don't have
access to the startup funding the folks in the top 20 do,
but then again, we only lose several thousand a month, rather
than burning through millions.....heh, heh, just joking.
Here we see a very fine listing of foreign search engines
from the University of Texas Online Library. Included
in the listings are many search engines categorized by their
areas of expertise. UT Library
Online - University of Texas
Who hasn't heard of the University of California
Berkeley Library? This very fine library site
discusses metasearch engines, included definitions, the
good, the bad, and the ugly, as well as their favorite sites.
Berkeley - Teaching Library Internet Workshops
University Library has a master list of search engines
here at this site.
RefDesk.com is definitely
one of our favorite sites. This search engines resource
page contains a rather extensive list of the various search
engines on the net.
of Nebraska's IANR search pages are not as extensive
as other sites mentioned here but they do have one thing
the others don't. They have a list of agricultural
search engines. How about that!
Food for thought
The Ants and the Grasshopper
THE ANTS were spending a fine winter's day drying grain collected in
the summertime. A Grasshopper, perishing with famine, passed by and
earnestly begged for a little food. The Ants inquired of him, "Why did
you not treasure up food during the summer?" He replied, "I had not
leisure enough. I passed the days in singing." They then said in
derision: "If you were foolish enough to sing all the summer, you must
dance supperless to bed in the winter."
