This paper examines the impact of crowdsourcing on search result ranking by identifying the relation between crowdsourcing and web search. Here the question arise, what are the reasons that compel me to search this category i-e crowdsourcing and search result ranking. To me, it is very beneficial for us as student of computing to know about the relation of crowdsourcing with web technology. How much is impact-able if we add it as ingredient in our searching results for finding good webpages is understandable after reading this paper.

Crowdsourcing is a term coined by Jeff Howe in wired magazine to characterize a way of using groups to solve the problem [1].The groups are usually online communities, such as member s of a blog or a visitor of website. An organization broadcast the problem to the crowd as an open call for solution. The crowd submit solution, and then sort through them, find the best one.
The organization selects and owns the ultimate solution, and sometimes rewards members of the crowd. As this paper also explain the application aspect of crowdsourcing when it merge with web-technology.
Crowdsourcing, WEB 2.0, Social networking.
The last two decades have seen dramatic revolution in information technology: not only in computer power, such as the processor speed, memory size and innovative interfaces, but also in the everyday use of computer. The 1990s was the decade of the World Wide Web, built over the physical infrastructure of the internet, radically changing the availability of information and making possible the rapid discrimination of digital information across the globe.
Web2.0 is heavily oriented toward content generation by people who…...

Jones Liadh Kelly Jaime Teevan Copyright ©2010 remains with the author/owner(s). Proceedings of the SIGIR 2010 Workshop on Desktop Search (Understanding, Supporting and Evaluating Personal Data Search). Held in Geneva, Switzerland. July 23, 2010. Preface These proceedings contain details on the invited talks and the papers presented at the SIGIR 2010 Workshop on Desktop Search (Understanding, Supporting, and Evaluating Personal Data Search), Geneva, Switzerland, 23 July, 2010. Despite recent research interest, desktop search is under-explored compared to other search domains such as the web, semi-structured data, or flat text. Even with the availability of several new desktop search tools, users are more successful finding information through browsing their personal collections and subsequently show preference for this approach. Problems with existing desktop search tools include performance issues, an overreliance on good query formulation, and a failure to fit within the user’s work flow or the user’s mental model. As the available storage for desktop collections becomes cheaper and more plentiful and new media types continue to appear, the size and types of items stored in personal collections is growing rapidly. The need for effective......

Search for Meaining see who is calling you angrily answer the call. Realizing it is your mother on the other line you immediately interrupt her to tell her it is dire that you get a new phone as soon as possible. After ignorantly insisting for a new phone your mother then informs you that your grandmother has severely fallen and it is not looking to good for her and she might not make it. Taken back you instantly realize how selfish and ungrateful you were acting. Sometimes people get caught up in materialistic things and lose sight of the true meaning of life. It is moments like these that bring us back to reality and remind us not to get caught up in the little things in life. With that in mind, Dr. Viktor Frankl does an exceptional job in Man’s Search for Meaning portraying the true meaning of life, which more often than not in our materialistic world many people lose sight of. Through his research and first hand experience in the concentration camps, Dr. Viktor Frankl is able to teach us that it is not the materialistic things in life that are important but in fact how we handle ourselves in certain situations. It is through research such as that done by Dr. Viktor Frankl that has provided one theory of how a meaningful life can be established. Dr. Frankl was a practicing psychiatrist when he and his family were arrested and taken to a Nazi concentration camp. His theory and form of therapy, called logotherapy was developed through his experiences and treatment at the......

Paid Search are the third generation of Harmons, grandsons of the founders Jake and Irene Harmon. Through the generations and growth, Harmons has remained true to its vision, mission and values. Stated on the Harmons homepage the values of Harmons are integrity, community, tradition, innovation and quality. Its mission is to value its associates and exceed customers’ expectations. Target Demographic: Although Harmons welcomes all, our marketing is directed to Females age 21-49, married, with a household income of at least $50,000. Competition: There are many different grocers located within Utah, many being national chains with very large advertising budgets. So the competition for price, location, and market share is fierce. Harmons desires to place its self between Smiths for size and convenience and Whole Foods organic and whole/healthy Appeal. The Problem: For many years, Harmons has been a local grocer that has announced its weekly Ad through a full page newspaper insert. However, over the last decade newspapers have become less and less common in households. Harmons along with many other grocers now question the value of allocating resources to creating print ads that are distributed to households. Especially since no solid metric exists to show if these print ads are seen or drive sales. Their customers say that the print ad is important and do not wish for it to go away anytime soon. However, Harmons experimented with turning off the Ad in select areas and saw......

If Redwood and Ross is to successfully make freshmen a target market, then Redwood and Ross must develop strategies for increasing awareness. ADVERTISING STRATEGIES FOR REDWOOD AND ROSS Advertising can serve several purposes for a retail clothing store. First of all, advertising gives people information about product lines, prices, store hours, and store location. Also, advertising can help a store create an image. If the ad is sophisticated and portrays a sophisticated image of the store, people will get the impression that the store is sophisticated. Successful advertising can create any type of image the store desires. Page 14 Advertising makes the audience more aware of products and prices a store offers. People can get an idea of the quality, style, atmosphere and price available at the clothing store. Advertising, by creating awareness, can increase sales. Belden Associates' research on advertising in Champaign-Urbana shows that the most effective medium is newspapers. The respondents to the questionnaire were asked to choose the one source of advertising they relied upon most. As Table 3 shows, newspapers are by far the most popular source with students.

Porter's 5 Point Analysis on Web Search Engines

...Competition from Substitutes: High * Google may have a competitive advantage over the rest of the search engines, however being so easy to select a different search engine and with Microsoft trying to forward its own product through its operating system, might change the figures in the future. Threat of Entry: Medium-high * New search providers might concentrate on localized search and succeed into getting a niche in that area, however when it comes to global search there is a high entry barrier due to the large scale of information and infrastructure already acquired by the biggest companies. Rivalry between Established Competitors: Medium * Currently the four biggest search engines are Google, Microsoft’s Bing, Yahoo, and AOL. However, Google has the largest piece of the market and seems to be ahead of the others with Bing being on the rise and the rest three very close to each other. Smaller ones such as Altavista, Lycos and Excite do not seem to pose a direct threat to any of the biggest four. Bargaining Power of Buyers: Low * Advertisers recognize that the biggest providers together concentrate the largest number of searches, around 95% of the total. Therefore there is no room for negotiating advertisement prices. Also, even if a few users change search engine, it is unlikely to have any effect. Bargaining power of Suppliers: Low * The essence behind the search engines is their computer infrastructure. The biggest companies have such wealth......

Social Search

...Social Search New Media is changing how we search - by Karan, Nalini, Shrawan, Suby SOCIAL SEARCH New Media is redefining how we search By Karan, Nalini, Shrawan, Suby What is Social Network? A social network is a social structure made up of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes", which are tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as friendship, kinship, common interest, financial exchange, dislike, sexual relationships, or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige. What is Social Search? If one saw a play last month, naturally his friends would ask of it. The answers may give short shrift to the true awful aspects of it — the incoherent plot, the songs not looking like the original — and emphasize the truly cool aspects of the acrobatics and the set design. Therefore for the friends wondering to the play, whose opinion on the play should affect more? The Google search engine was implicitly built on the premise that the view of The Art critic should prevail. An analysis of the link structure of the web would reveal the Times as a popular destination. When the critic weighed in, many others would link to his review. Numerous other “signals” — clues that may indicate increased relevancy of a given site for a given query — also would boost that review’s presence in search results. But others argue that in the real world, people are influenced by their friends and contacts, and Google’s historic approach is lacking. The...

...LEGAL MEMORANDUM 02-264 TO: ALL JUSTICES OF THE PEACE FROM: PATRICIA W. GRIFFIN CHIEF MAGISTRATE RE: NIGHTTIME SEARCH WARRANTS DATE: APRIL 30, 2002 ________________________________________________________________________ The subject of nighttime search warrants was discussed by Chief Magistrate Barron in some detail in Legal Memorandum 80-5, “Search Warrants; A Review” (July 10, 1980) at 7-9; Legal Memorandum 80-5 (4th Supplement) (December 1, 1987). However, since that time, there has been a considerable amount of caselaw concerning such warrants, so that this is an appropriate time to review the current law regarding the issuance of nighttime search warrants. What is a nighttime search warrant? A nighttime search warrant is a warrant that expressly authorizes a search of a residence during the nighttime. To issue such a warrant the judge should not only find the normal probable cause to issue a search warrant, the judge should also be satisfied that there is probable cause to believe that the issuance of the warrant for the nighttime is necessary in order to prevent the escape or removal of the person or thing to be searched for. The requirement for a special nighttime search warrant is contained in 11 Del.C. § 2308 that states: A search warrant shall not authorize the person executing it to search any dwelling house in the nighttime unless the judge, justice of the peace or magistrate is satisfied that it is necessary in order to......

The Achievement of Desire

...The Achievement of Desire RICHARD RODRIGUEZ Hunger of Memory, the autobiography of Richard Rodriguez and the source of the following selection, set off a storm of controversy in the Chicano community when it appeared in 1981. Some hailed it as an uncompromising portrayal of the difficulties of growing up between two cultures; others condemned it because it seemed to blame Mexican Americans for the difficulties they encountered assimilating into mainstream American society. Rodriguez was born in 1944 into an immigrant family outside San Francisco. Though he was unable to speak English when he entered school, his educational career can only be described as brilliant: undergraduate work at Stanford University, graduate study at Berkeley and Columbia, a Fulbright fellowship to study English literature in London, a subsequent grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. In this selection, Rodriguez analyzes the motives that led him to abandon his study of Renaissance literature and return to live with his parents. He is currently an associate editor with the Pacific News Service in San Francisco, an essayist for the Newshour with Jim Lehrer, and a contributing editor for Harper's magazine and for the Opinion section of the Los Angeles Times. His other books include Mexico's Children (1991) and Days of Obligation: An Argument with My Mexican Father (1993), which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in nonfiction.

...Literary Essay – Desire The horrors of the unknown. How can you be scared of something that you do not know of? Generally, not knowing what to expect is what drives the fear, and it is sometimes hard to face that fear. You do not know what it is that you fear, only that the feeling is unwelcome and makes you feel uneasy. In the short story “Desire” by Daisy Perkins, the main character is balancing between her desires to be with a man whom she adores and the fear of the unknown. The main character is a woman, who is very insecure and unfamiliar with having sex. She has met a man named Dave, but since they have not known each other for long, she does not feel safe around him:” We haven’t known each other for long. I can’t be myself around him. That’s maybe because he is twenty years older or maybe it’s because he is a scientist and I’m an artist” P. 1-2. This quote also shows that the main character is significantly younger than Dave and that they have completely different interests. Yet the main character is very curious, and her curiosity drives her to have sex with Dave:” We operate from different sides of the brain, curiosity compelling us to continue seeing each other” P.2. Even though the main character is curious, she is still afraid of the unknown – of having sex with Dave:” Sex isn’t complicated. But now, on this boat, it’s uncomfortable, I don’t know what to do with my body or where to direct myself” P.2. She is not afraid of having sex, but she is afraid of......

The Role of Desire in a Streetcar Named Desire

...Orlando Davies-Vannelli Tennessee Williams maintained that he couldn't write any story unless, "there is at least one character in it for whom I have a physical dewire." In the light of this comment, discuss the role of desire in the play. There are many moments in the play 'A Streetcar Named Desire' where Blanche DuBois and desire are inextricably linked. Indeed, she arrives in Elysian Fields after taking a streetcar named desire. One critic has said that the journey which Blanche takes to get to her sisters apartment on a streetcar named Desire and and then changing to a streetcar named Cemetries reflects her overall journey through life. For example, in her youth she rode on her desires and during as well as after the play takes place, she changes to a morbid route, described as "Cemetries". In some sense, her quest for desire was as short lived as her tram ride. Another moment where the idea of desire is evident is when Stanley tells Stella that "I (he) am the king around here, so don't forget it." which reflecs his desire to have power and control over everyone in his 'domain'. This is one moment in the play where Stanley's true controlling ideas are shown to the audience. Through Stanley, Williams presents us with the idea that he is one who has achieved his desrie of being unnapposed in his society. An example of this is at the end of the play where Stanley isn't held accountable for a crime he has committed (the rape of Blanche) and his life goes back to how it......
