It’s been two and a half years since I started down this road, building our very first, very crude prototype in a couple of weeks, and walking into the first demo knowing that we were onto something big, even if we didn’t know what that really meant. I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to dive headfirst into such an engrossing, challenging space over the last couple of years, it’s been a great ride with a great team!
Neil’s blog post says it much better than I could ever rehash it (but I’ll try anyway): we are building a data graph of the web, a set of people, places, things, concepts, connected by specific relationships harvested from relevant content. The company motto: “search less. understand more.” is our way of saying that we have something truly disruptive: this is not search gone to eleven, or Wikipedia on steroids, but something much more powerful that gets around the current, completely disjoint user experience of “search, then browse, then search some more, then forget what you were originally searching for”.
