Powerset Searching

According to Dan Farber from ZD Net, Powerset, the natural language search mashup platform, should launch in September. He quotes Steve Newcomb, Powerset co-founder and COO: "We're after after a pretty big goal–replacing the core of the search engine.”
Powerset is using natural language technology from Xerox Parc and focusing its efforts on the indexing. It’s building a search destination site and a platform that leverages the wisdom of the crowds for development. Snippet from ZDNet.
One can follow their progress on their company blog, and on the founders' blogs: Barney Pell, Steve Newcomb, and Lorenzo Thione. I especially like the Query of the Week examples.
