Every once in a while, an application comes along that mimics the way people interact in the natural world. Talk Digger is one of them. Fundamentally, it's a search engine—yes. But, it pulls up results based on what people are saying about the URL you entered. It's like eavesdropping on multiple conversations, with the ability to hone in on the ones that interest you. There is some really nice functionality like a built in preview pane that allows you to "peek" at the referring site without going to it. Give it a test ride, it's pretty neat. Here's how the developer has positioned it:
”You have in hand the URL of a piece of news of the BBC, a blog post, a product page, or any other web page, and you want to know who is talking about it, you want to know what people have to say about it. You copy that URL, paste it in the Talk Digger search box and press Dig it!
Talk Digger will then return results from various search engines. All the results returned contain
a link to the URL. This is what we call a conversation: a multitude of people, all over the Internet,
linking to a specific URL. The following schema describe what a conversation found by
Talk Digger is.”
