Agora Search

  • The [[agora]] is in essence equivalent to a [[distributed]] [[wiki]].
    • Note you could theoretically use a wiki to [[crowdsource]] search results; in the limit, think of having a wiki page for every likely user query.
    • Perhaps [[agora search]] tries to find a good match for your query locally and redirects to other agoras in the network or to [[google]] or [[duckduckgo]] if a good local result isn't available.
      • When it volunteers something, it also offers to continue your query in the search authority of your choice.
    • [[push and pull]] could be used to offer hints for how to route queries to relevant results.
  • The [[agora]] can already be used as a [[search engine]].
    • To do so, you can use the following URL template in your browser of choice:
      • Searching this way behaves the same way as searching using the text box always at the top of this [[agora]].
    • As of [[2021-02-27]], you can also just use [[open search]] to add the [[agora]] as a search engine; this works at least on [[firefox]]. You should be able to see the agora as an available search engine to add in the search box.
    • The [[agora]] will try to serve any relevant nodes for your queries -- useful for when you have notes on the topic you're searching for.
      • In every case, the [[agora]] will try to make it easy for you to 'click through' and continue your search elsewhere -- in established search engines or the websites of your choice.
  • Agora Search is [[crowdsourced search]] for the [[open]] [[internet]].
  • [[user story]]
  • [[keywords]]
  • [[pull]] [[crowdsourced search]]
  • [[2021-02-27]]
    • Hooking up with [[yubnub]] seems like a good idea.
    • Working on general [[usability]] in parallel.
