SharePoint Search+ Webinar

I’ve been having some fun working with the good folks at Surfray, who make Ontolica search engine, on a webinar concept I call Search Plus. The idea behind it is to take SharePoint search to the next level using a series of dynamic user experiences.

The webinar is today at 2 pm EDT, and the webinar will be posted online.

Here’s the deck I will be discussing – hope it gets some good creative ideas going!

I’m proud that my company StoneShare has been nominated as a finalist in Ottawa’s Bootstrap Awards as one of the fastest-growing self-funded startups in the last three years. Here’s the press release:

OTTAWA (January 31, 2012) – Following a record number of nominations, Exploriem today announces the finalists of the 2012 Bootstrap Awards. Finalists in the 12 categories were narrowed down from a pool of 97 nominations received in the last six weeks.

“This year we see a 45 per cent increase in nominations which is testament to the self capitalized talent and growing entrepreneurial culture in Ottawa” says Dr Bruce Firestone, Executive Director of Exploriem and mentor to many local businesses.
