The Grand Vision

Medusa's Cave is a blog where we discuss some Internet services and attempt to build very simple prototypes of some of them. In most cases our implementation will be in python 2.x. Knowledge of python is assumed, though we will try to walk through most important details of every implementation. The current goal (we reserve the right to change this at any time) is to cover the following:
  1. hyper-link checker, robust hyperlinks ... to web-crawler
  2. desktop search, discussion of web-search engines
  3. google news
  4. genetic algorithms to solve puzzles
  5. document auto-summarizer
  6. twitter sentiment analysis
  7. ... and other ideas that might occur to us along the way.
