Become a Part of Natural Language Processing with Powerset

I, for one, am very eagerly waiting for a true natural language search-engine to appear, one that I can query in normal, everyday speech and that can understand and respond effectively to my questions. Like, "Computer, please compile a list of all firms in the U.S. that are currently working on Natural Language Processing. Oh, and please list them in order of the size of their annual budgets.
