Launch of Twendly

Yesterday we launched which is the Twitter people search implementing a version of the HiveMind engine we have been working on.

It’s still very much a preview of the concept, but if you’ve been following and are interested in what we are up to, then I invite you to take the time to go to the site and sign in using Twitter (yes, we are only supporting Twitter just at the moment).

Even if you don’t have a Twitter account you can still search and play with it — you’ll get the basics of the concept very quickly, but if you do have a Twitter account, we’d love you to sign up and let us index all your tweets to add more users into the database and make the demonstration more meaningful. We’d love to get a couple of hundred people signed up over the Christmas period, so feel free to invite and encourage your friends to join in too.
