Search in Social Media 2010 Coverage

Yesterday was the Search in Social Media (SSM) 2010 workshop. Daniel posted his summary. You can also read the tweet stream.

Of particular note is the coverage of Jan Pedersen's keynote where he highlighted some opportunities and challenges with SSM.
The benefits of social media search include trust and personal interaction (as compared to web content that is often soulless and of uncertain provenance), low latency (though perhaps at the cost of accuracy), and access to niche or ephemeral information that web search rarely surfaces.
I look forward to reading more coverage and getting other perspectives on the event.
