This past week at the NCTE conference in San Antonio, I was humbled by the fact that I was asked to present with Linda Rainer (my department head), Linda Gaydosh, and Nikki Townsend about shifts in the American dream as presented in literature. During Nikki’s part of the presentation she showed us MAHALO.COM.
This is a search engine that categorizes your search engine choices for you. For example, here is a Mahalo search for George Bush Pardons. As you can see, it categorizes it into Possible Pardons, Confirmed Pardons, Mahalo Top 7, and News Stories, and CITATIONS(!).
This might become my new favorite search engine! After all, if you search for something via Mahalo and decide you want to switch, you can just click the tabs across the screen to change.
