ReadWriteWeb on Zoetrope

ReadWriteWeb staff writer Sarah Perez writes about Zoetrope in Zoetrope: New Web Crawler Allows For Searching, Analyzing The Ever-Changing Web. She makes the point that the project brings archival web searching to the masses, quoting CSE professor Dan Weld: “Zoetrope is aimed at the casual researcher. It’s really for anyone who has a question.”

A joint project with Adobe Systems, other researchers working on the project include CSE professor James Fogarty, CSE graduate student Eytan Adar, and Adobe researcher and CSE alumna Mira Dontcheva.

We reported earlier on UW News coverage of Zoetrope here. You can view a five-minute video on Zoetrope at UW News here.
