Lotts of great idea's coming through. Please keep them coming.
Ok so my first problem with a new open source search engine is it has no data, nothing so when people come to it they are bound to be disappointed. So I used a Bing script to bring in some results so that we wouldn't have an empty search result. These results come in below the results for own database.
Next I needed a crawler, open source, this will need to be replaced with a P2P crawler but to start with I grabbed a download of Sphider.And did a quick crawl of w3c.
Next I needed a way to get people to add there sites and thought of the suggestions about human review and Dmoz. In the end I thought the easiest way would be for people to bookmark them. The sites could then be voted up or down and those that gained positive votes would then be crawled. So I downloaded SemanticScuttle for this.
Lotts more to come, I have added the url of the site to my profile. I can't and don't want to do this alone so please get involved. Anyone out there that can design a logo?
