Search Companies by Location

I don’t know if this’ll be useful to anyone or not, but over the past several months I’ve compiled a list of the physical locations of some search (using the term loosely) companies. Why? Because deep in my soul there still lives a librarian and ontologist. I’ve limited it to companies that have English products.

It’s certainly not exhaustive, so if you know more, send them my way.

  4. Thanks John. Going through that list would keep me busy for quite a while!

  5. There might be a few extra on John Batelle’s homepage too. Don’t limit yourself to websearch. Federated searching in the corporate enterprise is interesting too…
