Browse and Search To Become Old-Fashioned Distinctions?

Gene Smith’s comments on browse vs. search makes me think the difference between search and browse is melting away, it’s a matter of using the right metadata to describe the content so even the search is basically an automated browse…bouncing from topic to topic to extract the right information.

As a scenario, it’ll be like when they do research by talking to the computer on Star Trek, circa Next Generation.
