I haven't checked this, but it looks interesting. -Bob Steel -------- Original Message -------- Subject: (en) Announcing A Google-like Search Engine for Activists! From: resist admin <email@example.com> Date: Tue, April 8, 2003 5:27 am To: firstname.lastname@example.org ________________________________________________ A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E http://www.ainfos.ca/ http://ainfos.ca/index24.html ________________________________________________ The Resist! Collective would like to announce a new search tool for activists at http://search.resist.ca - Search most of the major activist web sites, plus many other progressive resources, all from one place! This unique project provides a fast and comprehensive research tool focused on activism and radical politics. Finally, there is a search engine that allows you to find alternative news, analysis, contacts, events, and other information --- all in the context of the "activist web". Search.resist.ca indexes over a quarter of a million web pages across more than two hundred and fifty sites around the world, and it continues to grow rapidly. Some major sites already indexed include ainfos.ca, indymedia.org, infoshop.org, protest.net, tao.ca and zmag.org. Your favourite sites may already be indexed, and if there's an activist site you think belongs in the index, you can let us know at http://search.resist.ca/addurl. A list of the currently indexed sites can be found at http://search.resist.ca/sites. Other features of http://search.resist.ca: * It's multilingual! * Never any corporate banner ads! * We won't track your searches and invade your privacy --- for law-enforcement, commercial, or any other reasons --- like google and other commercial search engines do! * It's a great way to find vegan and vegetarian recipes from sites such as veganchef.com and vegweb.com! * We promise that --- unlike other search engines --- searching search.resist.ca for "revolution" won't return results from any game software developers or business marketing firms! * We use open-source software to provide features such as: - Limiting your search results to one site, or even a domain, for example all Indymedia sites. - Cached pages. Every page that we index is copied and stored on our server, so you can still get the information you need even if the original server is unavailable. - A page ranking system to provide relevant results. - Searching for sites that link to a page, so that you can find out who links to your site. If you run an activist-oriented website and would like to use search.resist.ca for your site's search, you can grab a code snippet from http://search.resist.ca/searchcode.html to use on your site. What's the crappiest thing about search.resist.ca? It's name! We're great at creating and implementing communications tools for activists but we suck at giving them cool names. If you like the tool and can think of a good name for it, let us know at email@example.com. So check it out and give us feedback: help us make this a valuable communication tool among us who struggle for justice. ______________________ the Resist!
