BoxFish: Search Engine for Television References

While the world of internet search engines is dominated by Google, a new search site, Boxfish, has entered with an entirely new twist: searching for references on TV.

Calling themselves “TV’s information engine,” Boxfish grabs the closed captioning text streams from major broadcasters and makes it searchable in real time.

Formatting is not ideal but the content is fast and free.

This service is an excellent resource for trending issues (e.g., Facebook IPO, searching for references of “Romney” vs. “Obama”), latest news, and monitoring news references as they happen.

Stenotype Institute, based here in Florida, suggests that Boxfish may be a boon for stenographers.  Ars Technica was also a fan.
