I’ve been playing with a beta of something called OpenCola for the last week or so. OC is a next generation P2P application combining search with relevance. It’s something like Gnutella combined with a relevance engine like the one Amazon uses to recommend books. So, with OC you can:
- search multiple sources simultaneously – all the popular search engines, news sources, blogspace etc.
- categorize the results as to whether they are relevant or not
- find more sites which are like the relevant sites you have found
- share the results of your searches with other OC users plugged into the OC net, and add the results of their searches to your searches, building a knowledge base of relevant information around the topic
