Powerset, Google, are you listening?
Today I ran across a frustrating example of polysemy - resume. I was searching for some help getting my linux server to resume file downloads so I searched for
vsftpd file resume
I got back Seth Vidal's Resume. Hmm, not exactly what I was looking for, but perhaps I'll give him a call and ask for his help. Maybe it's a sign from Google. Ahh well. A few more iterations and I found what I was looking for, but even in several of my refinements it seemed impossible to entirely escape Seth.
I thought this was a good example of where I wanted to disambiguate my query -- I did not want someones resume, I wanted to resume my file transfer. A good example of polysemy and where a better understanding of my query would have been nice.
Please, give me a way to disambiguate or do a better job of reading my mind.
