Image search for information discovery

Lately I've experimented with image search engines as a way to find interesting written information. The process is simple.

1. Query the search engine about your topic of choice.

2. Instead of clicking through to the website returns, click on Images.

3. Scan the images for pictures or diagrams that capture your concept. 

4. Click on the image.

5. Click on the website for the image

6. Evaluate the results

When you change the way your search, you change what you find.  This opens your mind to new possibilities for serendipity and new paths to information discovery! ~ Dennis
