What I Ordered?

I just noticed Google’s “Custom Search” feature. I’ll have to look further into this, but it certainly appears to resemble the kind of seeded-search engine I described in my paper of 2004. If it does indeed work that way — or reasonably close to that, or if it can be hacked to work that way — I suspect it’s much bigger news than the attention it’s been getting.
