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.
