ABSTRACT
The author discusses the Qwiki Web site and what prompted the author to invent it. While using Web searches to get information about a trip to Argentina, it occurred to him that the results he was getting lacked a human perspective. In his view Web users would like a curated, interactive presentation on search topics, which is what Qwiki delivers.
