Searching in Three Dimensions
I met a company called SpaceTime last night that offers 3-dimensional search. It's an application you download to your desktop, and it then acts like any other browser. If you want to look at YouTube clips, it scrolls through them in 3-D form, without having to download them first. If you do a regular search, it displays the results in 3-D windows so you can see what you're looking for right way and flip through the choices in seconds, instead of flipping back and forth between results.
It reminded me a bit of the way windows are displayed on Windows Vista operating system, where you can flip through all the applications that are open on your desktop. The difference of SpaceTime, said CEO Eddie Bakhash, is that it integrates dynamic search results so you see whatever you search for--whether it's video clips on YouTube or traditional Web pages on Google--in real time. You can see an entire timeline of activity at the bottom of the screen. So if you find a page you like, you can scroll back to it in seconds.
