Better search and browsing capability!

It could be great to be able to search for specific users (or users with a specific word in their name, like "Museum" or "Institute") and to browse the "topics"/timelines by their categories. The directory is only moderately helpful, and the search function not much at all.

Hello Jessica,

We're working on it currently, I promise. We want to improve both search and browsing by topic category.

A few weeks ago we rolled out user-categorization. We plan to use this information to visualize categories on the site and allow users to browse through good topics.

We are also working on improving site search. I would be happy to keep you posted on this thread or by email!

Thanks, Steve! Good to hear! I made do with a Google site search, but had to filter a lot, and it didn't seem to be totally effective. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
