  the existing Design-List community and the Architexturez project...

architexturez / design-l more:


howard, i just found this:
http://lists.psu.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0304&L=design-l&F=&S=&P=14995


it is indeed possible for architexturz to create a design-l specific
search
engine, or include design-l in AZ-OUT, the wide area (re)search engine
we
are writing for architecture and related subject searches. this will
finally
look like a cross between citeseer (http://citeseer.nj.nec.com/cs) and
google. you can see experimental results right now by searching
www.architexturez.net/sys/ (say, search "design-l") and clicking on the
"formatted" link in the results.


architextuez also needs people who can help create the architexturez
subject
gateway, the 1st level technology is in place alrady, and people can
help us
create subject listings, taxonomies and interpretation of data
available on
the web. this is not just a links directory, but rather, a research
engine.
we will create:


stage 1 (implemented) a categorised subject listing (see
www.architexturez.net/sub.gate/
stage 2 (under development) a research engine
stage 3 (planned) a web based ontology for architecture research (see
