The Internet Challenge
Traditional Online Challenges the Net
Knight Ridder Information Services and Dow Jones/News Retrieval challenged Net search services to a searching show down. Which is the better information source — the Net or Online search services? Hundreds of searchers with at least two years of professional searching experience and familiarity with both Internet and traditional online searching, took the challenge. They used "real" questions — something that they had been asked or needed to know. They searched at least one online search service and one net search service. Logs and search results rated for relevance were submitted for tallying.

Results of the challenge will be evaluated and reported by Sue Feldman, President, Datasearch, on November 18, followed by a full written report in Searcher magazine.
