In this talk Erik will describe these applications, what made their use of Lucene and other technologies unique and interesting, and where these applications are going. The applications discussed: blogscene,, Rossetti Archive search engine, Collex, and Blacklight. These applications use a variety of other technologies, though all use Lucene, some also using Solr.
