Googling your email. ... [Jon's Radio]

Such a simple, but great idea. Funny how things happen together - here's me playing around with Lucene, and Jon posts about how ZOE hooks a search engine into email. Does ZOE use Lucene perchance? It does!

Information now comes at us through so many channels, traditional structured storage (email folders / filtering rules etc.) is feeling the strain. I have so many mail filtering rules that apparently non-deterministic effects are starting to appear. Collating all my inputs such as email, RSS feeds etc. into a giant pot and slicing it every which way with a search engine sounds like a superb idea. No longer caring about where my data is, but simply what its about.
