Welcome feedback loops !

It will be most interesting to see what happens when :

1 - A LARGE numbre of websites update their contents and choke the input pipe at collecta

2 - Someone, uses collecta to update a page in a website monitored by collecta in realtime , pecially if they are used usually for different searches, and a cunning individual then makes an update making all the searches to be updated at once ( just by publishing a long list of searchable words )

Interesting times ahead if this takes grip.

Albert, with googles, waiting for the spectacle ...

Flipping 'eck...

...A new search engine comes out and no-one at the Register decides to write a 'FAIL AND YOU' bitch-slap about it?

phpBB has it

phpbb3 can use xmpp and is a very widely used forum app. I would say on the whole it is responsible for managing way more volume of content than Wordpress.

I wonder if Collecta has thought of this: 600 million squillion forum posts a day all containing just one smiley not to mention the spam abuse frequenly pesent on many forums.

Relevancy in real time is the important problem

When it comes to real time search, you can end up with a lot of spam and trivia because you don’t have the rich back-link structure of the web to assess relevancy and “page rank”. You need totally different algorithms and a lot more intelligence in the search engine to return useful information. That's what we have done at Line Spout (http://www.linespout.com).
