Clustering Technology

Take a look at this search engine: founded in June 2000 by Carnegie Mellon University research computer scientists.

From the company website:
Instead of returning just the first ten results of umpteen thousand on the search results page, we organize search results by using creative visualization techniques to give you the big picture for a faster, but more thorough, exploration of search results. Simple, yet powerful controls put you in command of your own search experience. In one quick glance, you can see the entire range of search results organized for easy drill-down and navigation. You can quickly weed out irrelevant information and uncover relationships that you would never have found by using a traditional search engine.

Typing in your own name somewhat gives you a view of how your professional life is categorized.
