Ms Dewey – Your Virtual Librarian

MsDeewey
My former boss Christer Klingberg at Örebro stadsbibliotek back in Sweden just sent me this really cool link: MsDewey. It’s a… eh… well, a sort of virtual VERY costumer oriented librarian. Very funny!🙂 But is it more than a good laugh? Is it useful as a search machine? The page is put together by San Francisco-based design shop Evolution Bureau, and seems to be part of a Microsoft ad campaign. The Flash design is nice but the search funcionality seems to be just average. A pity, because the basic idea is excellent I think!
