The Scout Portal Toolkit

Various authors, Internet Scout Project, Jan 22, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a very interesting software release with some nifty features. In addition to the usual search request features, it allows user annotation, user rating and user agents. It also adds an intelligent metadata tool to assist submissions. The free software runs on PHP and MySQL, so if you have a computer with an internet connection, you can get it running for free. What is needed now is to make the user generated content - like the annotations and rations - available to other readers via RSS or some similar format. Ah, it's all just a matter of time now, isn't it?
