Persistent Search, Unstructured Data, and the Future of Trading

I have a short quote in an article in today’s Wall Street Journal on the future of online investing. Basically, I am on about persistent search and unstructured data as being part of a likely future, with both leading to realtime tendrils connected to information that previously went unnoticed, or at least only intermittently traded.

Longtime readers of this site, or of my writings elsewhere, including Harvard Business Review back in 2004, will recognize this is a recurrent theme for me.


  1. Paul,
    Can you link to a similar article that you wrote for business2 sometime back? You talked about it on your blog but I can’t find it on b2’s archive.

  2. Nice piece — but is that writer’s name really Worth Civils? That’s incredible.
