have a look at this new site: Brand Gossip
it feels like search should feel, organic, and intuitive.
it has been designed by TBWA, as a tool for finding out what people are saying about a brand, on blogs, video, news sites.
unfortunately it is only in dutch. but you can still have a play with it, and hopefully it’ll be in other languages soon.
(disclosure: i work for TBWA – but i had nothing to do with this, unfortunately)
