Google Interested In Pinterest? Guessed It…

Back on December 22nd 2011 in a blog post on visual search I wrote,

Of course the secret sauce that makes this work is the curator phenomenon that is a central part of Pinterest. It’s similar to Wikipedia’s secret sauce in that regard. Curators make content valuable. Too bad Google didn’t figure that out and apply it to it’s image search functionality a long time ago. But then again, they could just buy Pinterest, grow it up like they did with Youtube, and then they’d dominate this new search method. That would be pretty smart. They’d own text search, video search, and image search. Just a thought.

Totally guessed this one coming. This is a fun gossip article regardless…”Ginterest” that’s fun.
