Better search and data modeling

Today we are releasing another set of important updates to CWAB. The Lucene search engine was previously integrated into CWAB, providing powerful search functionality to users.

Lucene indexing is now an automatic process; additionally, the search interface and functionality has been improved and simplified.

This update also includes the introduction of tooling for CWAB data modeling. CWAB comes with a unique approach to data modeling but we have been previously reluctant to hi-light it until the tooling was better developed. In the next blog post we'll include a quick video to introduce this very powerful functionality.

The feds need to shutdown the bitcoin scam now.

I live in Baltimore, let's say I have some hypothetical friends who are always looking for a good hustle.

Now imagine if my friends got together for a new get-rich-quick-scheme, the scheme is very simple. They invent something called cracken (bitcoins) that they start selling on a few blocks in Hamsterdam.

The way you get crackens is to do laps around the blocks in Hamsterdam. Initially when the scheme was setup, you could get a whole lot of crackens by merely doing a few strolls around the block. Needless to say my friends made out like bandits, since, after all they created the scheme and could take advantage of the first-come-first-serve rules.

Unfortunately for the rest of the hood, the number of laps required to get the same number of crackens keeps going up and after a while even the fittest folks in the neighborhood cannot do the lapse required to earn crackens.

Cracken mania takes hold and infects the whole city. Those with crackens start trading these crackens for exor…

What happened to sharing work with other developers?

There was a time when you could create something interesting and post it to a forum with programmers and actually get people interested in what you have. These days it seems short of being blessed (exactly by whom, only god knows) on HackerNews there is little chance you can get anyone's attention.

It is difficult to say precisely what the issue is because it seems multifaceted. It appears a combination of the rise of GateKeepers, perhaps cynicism inspired by the rise of GateKeepers and just a general overload of information has coalesced into a very difficult situation for those of us still daring to create without a VC backed turbo to charge forward with.

Over the past 5-8 yrs I have become quite dishearten by this loss of a genuinely curios developer community, or maybe I am just an old (36) fart who's been left behind.

Even tenure in certain communities doesn't count for anything anymore. I have been a member of HackerNews for 8.5 yrs and have only had 3 or 4 of my po…
