My dear readers,

This is my search, column for this very interesting week, dominated by the interesting New Energy story from Bologna.
My selection of recent information, an activity that has been my pleasure
and life organizer for long years. I have renamed this column, it’s a decision- (I think,  I exist, I decide,  I live.)

Why the Informavore’s Sunday?
Because it is written for the consumers of serious information and an issue is closed, by tradition, when I get the New York Times by e-mail, Sunday morning.

Why No. 439?
Because I want to celebrate all the other issues having  this logical structure that I composed at my former newsletter, Info Kappa under the name; “The Essential about Web Search.”
For the sake of continuity.

Dear readers, please read, enjoy, use and….multiply!
Thank you,
