Mahalo announcing new features

I'm supposed to attend a demo by Jason Calacanis tomorrow afternoon in advance of his keynote at the Search Engine Strategy Conference on Wednesday. Mahalo is the human-moderated search directory.

Recently, Newsweek published its Revenge of the Experts, which takes the view that the Web 2.0 user-generated content meme will be replaced by content produced by people who have some knowledge of the topic their presenting on the Web. Jason is quoted in this piece as saying that producing content in this way increases the chance to charge for premium content. He also says, "It's also easier to woo advertisers with the promise of controlled content than with hit-and-miss blog blather." I don't know if Jason is using "experts" to generate content for his directory, or if the scope of his site is as comprehensive as other search engines or even the Wikipedia.
