    Vanessa, awesome post. “Search Is the OS” just reviewed the Web 2.0 people search engine landscape as well. Growing space for sure, giving the Web a whole smarter human layer. If Web 1.0 was about linking information and Web 2.0 about linking people; Web 3.0 could very well be about linking people’s knowledge, creating a tremendous amount of incremental knowledge value.

    Great overview! The most important aspect of the people search space, not just from a search engine marketing point of view, but, more importantly, maintaining an individual’s reputation.

    I’m glad you addressed the reputation management issue.
