It's all spinning wheels and self-doubt until the first pot of coffee.

Google Boxes? Permasearch?

In doing some poking around about REST, I'm trying out a topic-specific Google search in the wiki via GoogleToRSS and RSSDisplay. (Thanks for the pointers, by the way, Sam!)

I called it a "permasearch", just because it's kind of a permanent search-in-residence. Basically a Google Box, only I didn't use RadioUserLand to make it. (That wouldn't've been as much fun, since Radio's already got verbs to handle it! :) Sometimes reinvention is fun.) I think I need to do some more homework on it to make it worth of a new name, like do searches when visitors aren't visiting it. (Currently, it updates at most once per hour, at least once per visitor.) Maybe do some time-series search differences... hmm, but what can one do with just the top 10 results?
