Dow Jones VP on search industry

You might know Dow Jones. They own the Wall Street Journal. So, it’s not everyday that I get to sit down with an executive vice president from there. And, wow, what an impressive person. I almost said “impressive woman” but you don’t get to the top of Dow Jones without being impressive all the way around and Clare Hart does not disappoint.

She was CEO of Factiva before Dow Jones bought that enterprise search engine. Which gives you some idea of what we mostly talked about. We talk about Dow Jones and search.

Factiva is used by lots of companies for search (I used it at Microsoft and it gave me a lot better results for corporate searches than Google or Live.com did). We talk about why that is, and which companies are best customers for Factiva.

She thought it was fun that I just setup a camera in the middle of our offices and have a chat without a camera crew and without lights or makeup or any of that that usually surround main stream media.

It was an interesting conversation (about 36 minutes) on a number of different topics, from Google, to blogs, to enterprise search.
