SortFix for searching and thinking about search

Via Richard Byrne’s lovely presentation Best of the EdTech Web 2010, I discovered Sort Fix.  It works as a search tool, a brainstorming tool, and a teaching tool.

Sort Fix graphically facilitates search and demonstrates thinking about search refinement.  A behind-the- scenes algorithm scans results to identify and present significant keywords.  Searchers can grab (or remove) these words from their search baskets to refine their searches and create better queries.  A dictionary basket is available to compensate for new vocabulary.

I am adding this to the top of my search pathfinders.  Take a look for yourself!
