Official Google Blog: This Week in Search.
I just noticed a new feature in the official Google blog focused on Search. It looks like Google will be posting the latest and greatest on search on a weekly basis is this space. They suggest subscribing to the label (tag) in your newsreader to follow this. Clicking on the label "This Week in Search" will aggregate all posts that are labeled as such; you can subscribe to this strand in Google Reader or whatever newsreader you currently use.
I'm looking forward to this, especially in light of the curriculum I recently co-wrote with Kathleen Ferenz and Cheryl Davis. I bet the information here is based on the work of Dan Russell, who researches user experience at Google.
