    Topic

    The subject is the burgeoning new vertical search space of people search.





    The panel includes Wink and Spock, at the moment, with more to come.



    Michael Arrington will be the moderator. It should be a great discussion about the hot, new, and burgeoning vertical search category of people search.



    The hype:

    * 30% of all searches on Google or Yahoo! are for specific people or people related.

    * Marge Simpson "googled" herself for the first time on the latest episode of The Simpsons

    * Is there room for a smart new company to take the place of a general search engine to provide better and more accurate results for people queries?

    * What's more important… the head or the tail?

    * What about disambiguation? How can that be achieved?

    * How does the concept of identity management play in to all of this?

    * more more more!



    Come and join us…
