Disclaimer: This is currently very experimental. I'm using it as a mailing list archive search engine. Some background:
Once upon a time there was a wonderful group of folks at Mozilla who designed a product called Raindrop. Sadly Raindrop never caught on, but their design and code are available under the Mozilla Public License.
Additionally, this is a small data project, which means it's priorities are open data, open source and giving users ownership of the content that they create.
Hacking on it/beta testing
