My name is Adam Curry and this section will contain info about me in the future, as soon as I get a few other things done.
Clearly it's time for me to start taking this blog roll serious, as it is now at it's own url: blogroll.curry.com
My LinkBlog (updates very frequently)
Fascinating new open source Peer2Peer Search project at YaCy.net
I'm running a peer now on a Rackspace hosted Windows2003 Server.
Speed isnt't great, but that just may be the java running under windows while it's indexing my WorldOutline. Lots to tweak and fiddle around with.
You can try it out here
All of this is running on my own personal server, but communicates with the search network. Cool!
Not only can you now subscibe the community to a feed you like, but you can also use it to contribute directly to the network by adding your own feed that you create with WordPress, Blogger or any other number of freely available systems.
I use the free Radio2 system, that creates feeds as a desktop or server application and utilizes Amazon's S3 for bullet-proof hosting.
I've had this operating in stealth mode for a few days and am happy with the results, so now it's time to open up the dors and see what happens.
The server utilizes real-time rss, so any system that understands this (wordpress does) will update a changed feed almost instantaneously.
