I’ve spent some time recently trying to find where people gather and discuss different search engine technologies and approaches. There is a Yahoo group which seems friendly and full of useful content, and a group on LinkedIn, a business networking site. Stephen Arnold’s blog is also a mine of information, with profiles of vendors and some very interesting comments on particular technologies. I’ve also found some more blogs which I’ve added to the blogroll on the right.
As we continue to develop Flax, it’s very interesting to hear about customers and developers’ experience with other engines. If you know of any other places to look please let me know!
