Morning! The days are quickly blending together in a flurry of dinners, lunches, drinks, parties, sessions and conversations.
Today we have Stefan Weitz, director at Bing (which, by the way, hosted a somewhat misplaced hip hop act at their party last night) who will discuss the significance of social and the Web.

Is it just me or did anyone else find it tough to stay up on search industry news with SES San Francisco flying by? Now, going through my feed reader, a number of important news bites are jumping out. Thought these might be worth sharing.
Google Streaming Search Test
Evidence of a test within Google search engine results shows the displayed results changing as a query is entered into the search box. One user reports that the Google home page automatically shifts from a search box on the predominantly white page to a results page with ads as a query is entered. Such instant preview search technology is also called “incremental search.”

Woohoo, my last session for today. Fingers are holding up quite well, and thanks to not having to move rooms very often, my unaccustomed-to-heels feet are doing well also. It’s been a few years since I’ve worn heels consistently.
Anyways, enough about my fingers and feet. This session is about Bing and how they are coming together with Yahoo! to become a new, powerful choice in search for consumers and advertisers. I have hopes it’ll be a good session with close to zero interruptions [see my last session about Twitter automation].
No names on the Bing speakers, so for now we’ll go with Woman1, Man1, Man2 and Man3.

It’s Friday the 13th! Have you got your lucky clover handy? Or do you laugh in the face of friggatriskaidekaphobes?
Susan, Bruce, Chris and a few lucky BCIers are getting ready for SES San Francisco next week. You may have noticed that we’ve yet to publish our liveblog schedule for the conference. You’ll find it welcoming readers to the blog on Monday, just in time to get excited about the show. I actually have a really exciting announcement about our liveblogging this time. For SES San Francisco we’re honored to have six awesome guest bloggers joining the liveblogging team. A special thanks to Alan Bleiweiss, Jayme Westervelt, John W. Ellis, Jonah Stein, Michael Martin, and Tracy Falke, whose liveblogging you’ll find right here next week. I mean, look at what John’s already doing to get hyped for the show! Next week is going to be awesome — even without turtles!

Ah, Spindex … just one tiny vowel away from spandex. If you haven’t heard of Spindex yet, it’s a Microsoft FUSE Labs service that was rolled out in beta and announced at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco in May.
Spindex is what many people would call an aggregator. FUSE Labs disagrees. In the video posted above, we find out it’s a “personal search engine for social media” that actually analyzes the content within your networks to find out what’s trending and who’s who among your entire social audience. Presumably, it brings you the information you’d be most interested in with regards to only your communities online.

Welcome to Friday, crazy cats. We both know you totally earned this weekend, so I thank you for stopping by for some recap before heading out to your sweet summer Saturday.
Susan and I have our plans all sorted out for the weekend. Come Sunday we’ll be driving out to Marina del Rey to attend the BlueGlass LA Internet marketing conference happening Monday and Tuesday. Susan will be liveblogging the sessions and I’ll be snapping up as many interviews as I can carry for our radio show. You’ll be there, too, if you’re in the area and know what’s good for you. Use the code bcbgla when you register to get 15 percent off.

Just a short recap today since we were planning our big announcement. Here are a few finds to keep you entertained while you’re sunning by the barbecue this lovely holiday weekend!
Serious stuff first. Bing announced its new crawler, bingbot, will replace msnbot come October. So don’t be alarmed when your server logs recognize a new agent in the field.
Social media marketers got an exclusive sneak peak of the upcoming Digg 4.0 from Brent Csutoras. Looks like suggested profiles, integration with Twitter, Facebook and e-mail, and big changes to the categories are on the horizon.

Happy Friday! Hope your first summer weekend kicks the happiest season off right! But before that, let’s take a sunny stroll through this week on the Web.
If it doesn’t feel like summer where you are yet, a chuckle is always good to get that warm fuzzy sensation running through your veins. The Internet had a good chuckle this week learning that the National Pork Board sent a cease and desist to ThinkGeek for stepping on the slogan “The Other White Meat” in their advertising for unicorn meat. What the pork people really need is a serving of Sasquatch — I hear it improves sarcasm detection.

Wow! What a week! SMX Advanced was intense. I learned a lot and made deeper personal relationships, and I wasn’t even there! It’s all thanks to the incredible liveblogging that I was honored to take part in. You can too — just head over to the earlier posts from this week (I’ve rounded them all up here and we share some additional liveblogging lessons here) by Susan and special guests Alan Bleiweiss, Dana Lookadoo, and Gil Reich.
Those who attended Bruce’s SEO training workshop yesterday found it to be a strong way to close out the show. Exhibit A was one attendee’s Twitter sentiment, which Paula shared in the writers’ room chat. I’ll let you into our special world for a moment.
