    Sorry, fading in and out today. Programming, for one. A lot of
    new information, to try to absorb for another.

    Topic maps? You mean these?


    In essence, most blogs have a search box, so most blogs already
    have a search engine of some kind on board.

    I'd like to provide a REST interface that generates results in
    XML, so that a blog can be searched via scripting.

    I'd like to create a REST interface that would allow a script,
    or a user interface, to create a comment regarding relevance,
    and have the blog store that comment.

    Gaming is countered by only permitting scripts or persons to
    comment, if they also have a blog, and that blog is listed as a
    trusted blog, somewhere.

    A lot of voting. A lot of consenus. No single authority.
