If February, I teamed with Constance Ard to help answer that question. We delivered a 90-minute presentation at Velocity Indiana, a business accelerator in Jeffersonville, Ind. The session was part of Open Office Hours, a monthly program sponsored by Richard Meadows.
Constance is a trained researcher and law librarian. I am a former reporter, editor and webmaster at The Courier-Journal. We work with ArnoldIT and Stephen E. Arnold, a consultant and author who has written extensively about Google and search technology. Their program is based on a series of seminars that was presented twice last fall to more than 500 security and law enforcement professionals.
The presentation included tips and tricks to get around Google's filters, profiles of free and low-cost online databases, and resources to get unfiltered worldwide news. And we used real-world examples to illustrate how different tools can be used to find relationships among businesses and persons of interest.
Here's a four-minute video drawn from our presentation. For more information, visit DeeperQI.com.
