I was recently interviewed by Mitchell Pronschinske for the DZone website on the subjects of open source search: you can download the podcast here. It’s part of a large resource they have on open source search, well worth a browse. We discussed how open source enterprise search has reached parity with closed source solutions, the various options available and what future developments might be.
You can also hear me talk at the European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR) in Dublin, as part of Industry Day on Thursday 21st April alongside speakers from Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and IBM amongst others. Do get in touch if you’re attending and would like to meet up for a chat about search over a pint of Guinness!
