Shelton firm's Web site seeks to 'organize' the Internet
BY DAVID KRECHEVSKY | REPUBLICAN-AMERICAN
Using Google to search for something can retrieve billions of references from the World Wide Web. Some of the information retrieved may be useful, some not so much, but it's up to you to sift page after page to find what you're seeking.
HAB Technologies in Shelton has a better idea.
The company today unveils boomja.com, a Web site that is part Google search and part "wiki," a Web site that allows anyone accessing it to contribute content.
Boomja's goal is to do what at first sounds impossible: organize the Internet. It offers user-generated directories of organized information that can help searchers find the specific information they want much faster than a Google keyword search.
Anyone can create a search category for free (subject to boomja's approval), and maybe earn some money in the process from Web advertising.
