A Tale of Two Search Engines, Revisited

As Jason announced previously, last Wednesday night I delivered
A Tale of Two Search Engines — a presentation for the Software Architecture and Modeling SIG of SDForum — about building and running the Krugle and MarkMail vertical search engines for code and email, respectively.

Here are my tidied-up slides.

Note carefully that my presentation style is a very visual, story-telling approach for live, interactive audiences -- i.e., the slide deck is quite large and not geared towards a reading-at-home audience. Heck, I only broke down and used bullet points on 4 slides right at the end. :-)

That said, I'll start blogging some of the stories, go deeper on various technical details, and/or get into any of the "fun topics" that people are interested in. Feel free to leave comments here about any that you particularly want to hear about.

Special thanks to Ron Lichty for dragging me into giving this presentation and the wonderful SAMSIG audience for making it so much fun.
