I recently asked Stefan Weitz to sit down with me for an interview and he came back to me with this interesting idea – a discussion on the shift from a web of nouns to a web of verbs. I knew I was in for an interesting ride even before the interview started! The interview itself was no disappointment. We dig deep into a wide range of topics and Stefan lays out some interesting ideas on how search is going to evolve.
For example, picture a search environment where the search box becomes the gateway to all the web apps out there. Stefan offers up the idea that we will be able to go to a search engine and search on “book a romantic dinner Austin”, and we will get back:
- A list of romantic dinner options
- Emphasis placed on restaurants our friends have Liked
- The ability to book a reservation via an app right then and there
This is just one example of the many things we discuss! You can read the full Stefan Weitz interview transcript here.
