Rollyo stands for "Roll Your Own Search Engine."
Using Rollyo, you create a searchroll. A searchroll is a collection of the sites you trust and find useful. It's a personal search engine you create to provide relevant results from a hand selected list of reliable sites.
Each searchroll gets its own Web address, so you don't have to wade through the whole Rollyo site to get to it, and you can email this address to others. You can even add your searchroll to the drop-down list of search engines in the toolbar of the Firefox Web browser, so you can search it without first navigating to the Rollyo site.

Social bookmarking is a user-defined taxonomy system for bookmarks. Such a taxonomy is sometimes called a folksonomy and the bookmarks are referred to as tags. Unlike storing bookmarks in a folder on your computer, tagged pages are stored on the Web and can be accessed from any computer. Technorati, a blogging site, describes the system as "The real-time Web, organized by you." Web sites dedicated to social bookmarking, such as Flickr and del.icio.us, provide users with a place to store, categorize, annotate and share favorite Web pages and files.
According to the January 24, 2006 issue of the Wall Street Journal, “Yahoo and Others Embrace “Tagging” as a Better Way to Find and Store Information”.
This article explains “Americans conduct nearly 200 million internet searches every day. Now several companies want to make this process by transforming the way people look for and store information.
The new method, dubbed “tagging” addresses a common complaint of many Internet users – that searching is often clumsy and inefficient. Web surfers often must sift through multiple pages of search results to find what they are looking for. And retrieving the best sites a second time often means redoing the search or trolling trough an unorganized list of sites that you have haphazardly saved in a “favorites” folder.
Although tech geeks have been using this new method for the last couple of years, and social bookmarking research has been going on for a while, it is only recently that “..tagging is moving into the mainstream. …Last month, Yahoo Inc., bought the popular tagging site Del.icio.us. Now the Sunnyvale, CA company says it plans to allow Del-iciou.us users to access their tagged links through MyWeb 2.0, Yahoos’ own tagging site.

Geotagging /Mashes and Maps - geotagging allows users to geographic information, such as an address, or latitude and longitude, to any digital content - everything from photographs and videos to news articles and blog posts. Then the content can be easily displayed on an online map or cross-referenced with other information about the location. Geotagging is related to another online practice called "mashups", where users place information, such as real estate listings onto an online map.
So far, the most popular application for geotagging has been online photos.
There are two ways to navigate through life easily: First is to question everything, the second is to question nothing. In either case, thinking is not required. This may just support the assertion that second hand information is like second-hand smoking, and just as deadly, particularly in the exponentially growing digital universe.
Evaluating online sources of information is not much different than critical reading – below is an outline of a suggested process, including attributes of information, attributes of poor problem solvers and getting to knowledge
Context and Timeliness Analysis
What are the author's credentials--institutional affiliation (where he or she works), educational background, past writings, or experience?
B. Date of Publication
When was the source published?
Is the source current or out-of-date for your topic?
C. Edition or Revision
Is this a first edition of this publication or not? Further editions indicate a source has been revised and updated to reflect changes in knowledge, include omissions, and harmonize with its intended reader's needs.
If the source is published by a university press, it is likely to be scholarly. Although the fact that the publisher is reputable does not necessarily guarantee quality, it does show that the publisher may have high regard for the source being published.
E. Title of Journal
Is this a scholarly or a popular journal? This distinction is important because it indicates different levels of complexity in conveying ideas.
A. Intended Audience
What type of audience is the author addressing? Is the publication aimed at a specialized or a general audience? Is this source too elementary, too technical, too advanced, or just right for your needs?
B. Objective Reasoning- Is this intended to persuade or manipulate?
Is the information covered fact, opinion, or propaganda? I
Does the information appear to be valid and well-researched, or is it questionable and unsupported by evidence? Assumptions should be reasonable.
Are the ideas and arguments advanced more or less in line with other works you have read on the same topic? The more radically an author departs from the views of others in the same field, the more carefully and critically you should scrutinize his or her ideas.
Is the author's point of view objective and impartial? Is the language free of emotion-arousing words and bias?
Does the work update other sources, substantiate other materials you have read, or add new information? Does it extensively or marginally cover your topic?
Is the material primary or secondary in nature? Primary sources are the raw material of the research process. Secondary sources are based on primary sources.
D. Writing Style
Is the publication organized logically? Are the main points clearly presented? Do you find the text easy to read, or is it stilted or choppy? Is the author's argument repetitive?

Panda is a Google search algorithm and "... just one of roughly 500 search improvements we expect to roll out to search this year,” writes Google Fellow Amit Singhal on the Google Webmaster Central blog. “In fact, since we launched Panda, we’ve rolled out over a dozen additional tweaks to our ranking algorithms. Search is a complicated and evolving art and science, so rather than focusing on specific algorithmic tweaks, we encourage you to focus on delivering the best possible experience for users.”
