Holy God, Powerset Launches

Posted by kev Mon, 12 May 2008 06:21:00 GMT

We’re out, searching Wikipedia and FreeBase. Proud doesn’t begin to describe my feelings about what’s been created. I think it speaks for itself, and I’ve been using it instead of Wikipedia for the last few months.

Some people even seem to really get it. And that’s an amazing high.

Huge thanks are not only due to the Powerset team (I love working with these people), but also to all of the open source projects we’re making use of. Hadoop. HBase. Thrift. Ruby. Merb. Rails. god. Mongrel. Mootools. RabbitMQ. The ActiveMessaging Project. Memcache and MemcacheDB. Erlang. Fuzed. YAWS. Countless others. All those people who take the time to answer our questions, and respond to our bugs, and consider our patches, and write interesting articles, and make our code better. You guys rock, and we couldn’t do it without you. So much love is heading in your direction right now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I’m exausted, and going to bed. Good night, and good luck. And try the app. I’m stoked.
