Sexy Librarian Search Interface

The Laughing Librarian has a post about Ms. Dewey, a new search engine that is highly entertaining. Who knows if she's useful but it sure is fun to think of clever questions to ask her because her response varies based on what you ask.

She's getting criticized in various articles, such as this one and this one, but I don't care. Even the fact that she's a Microsoft creation isn't enough to make me dislike her! She's funny and sarcastic. However, I do agree that she needs a longer loop of her impatient activities. Her cackling about ruling the world is pretty funny but I could probably only take that about 15 times before I got a bit irritated.

Seriously though, she's a sexy librarian with attitude. How could you go wrong with that?

I suggest you check her out. ;o)

That is interesting - though probably too slow for me to use it for real. The most enjoyable part is the great irony that I think Melville Dewey was both sexist and racist.

However, in this same sexy/books vein, I just read about the Babes with Books blog. I always knew being a male librarian would pay off.

Jeremy - glad you enjoyed it. :)

Herzogbr - Yeah, I doubt I'd use it for real either, but it's fun to mess with. I looked at the Babes with Books blog - interesting, but I don't know as I'll visit again. Guess you really would have to be a male librarian for that....

I prefer the flesh and blood sarcastic librarian. :)
