Microsoft Acquires Powerset

Confirmed: Microsoft Acquires Powerset – ReadWriteWeb

The software giant has finally acquired Powerset. I hope the technology of Powerset will be expanded to span the entire web instead of just Wikipedia which is the case now. It will be interesting to see how effective that will be compared to keyword and page rank based robust technology of Google. It is important that giants like Microsoft and Google demonstrate semantic applications rather than conservatively sticking to simple keyword based technologies. However, I am not sure if natural language querying will be more effective and appealing than keyword search. I think it is much easier to do keyword queries than typing in full questions.
