What should I call it - keyword search? contextual cross references?

What do you do when you realize you have invented something new, but didn't recognize it for what it was? Not quite serendipity, since I knew what I was creating, but simply didn't recognize the possible uses.
Anyway, I have started to realize that there is a lot of power in the concept I use in the LinkMatching method I mentioned before
which uses a view to create cross reference links automatically. I first added in @YourCommand for Notes R3, but I didn't realize that it might have more universal uses. I have added several new methods into Midas 3.10 (soon to be released) which use these, include ReplaceMatching
, as well as the additional capabilities I built into the original LinkMatching earlier. I mentioned some of this capability before in my second post on how Midas could help blogging
, but I am starting to realize that there are uses outside of blogging.
The only problem I really see is, what do I call the darn thing? Anybody have any idea what to call the whole concept of searching and acting on keywords derived from a view or external data set? Keyword search? Contextual cross references? Simple KM? Data Mining for dummies?
