Re: searchable index of the web

A very incomplete index of the web is located at
http://sturgeon.mit.edu:8001 as part of the Usenet University -- New
Network Academy. The way that this index works is that items are
assigned a "coverage code" 010 being a general index of everything on
the net to 120 which is an item (for example, a question in a Usenet
FAQ) and are sorted from most general reference to least general.
That way the first items returned by a search are the most general
ones corresponding to your search, and so you don't have the problem
as with veronica and archie of searching for "Law" and getting
overloaded with individual treaties.
