May 21, 2003: The Water Cooler at the Beeb

Whatever's in it, I'd like some please. It's helped those folks churn out a site with an absolutely cutting edge information architecture. Very smart BBC information architects like Matt Jones and Margaret Hanley are quaffing it. And now there's yet another BBC blogster to keep up with thanks to their mysterious H2O: Martin Belam. If you're interested in practical applications of search, I suggest you check his site out.

Martin has written some really useful stuff on search - well worth a read. I think the thing that has helped the BBC the most is the lack of interference there has been in its web-based activity, considering that it is an institution supported by the British TV licence-paying public. The realtively open and free remit means that the BBC has been able to take its focus on *quality* information exchange from the radio and TV platforms and hire really decent people to port the same quality onto the Web.
