SearchTogether

Today, on BoingBoing, there is a posting about TR35,  Technology Review’s list of innovators under 35. 

One of the super smart folks profiled in the list is Meredith Ringel Morris, 29, and her innovation is SearchTogether, a nifty tool that allows you to collaborate on web searches. 

The idea is so rich for education.  As the SearchTogether site describes, some of the features include: “group query histories, split searching, page-level rating and commenting, automatically-generated shared summaries, peek-and-follow browsing, and integrated chat.”

You can download the plugin for free, too.  (And, yes, we do love free things at LegalResearchPlus!)
