Moving right along

I’ve been working on the new JustIndiana.com functionality. It is coming together very nicely! I wrote a script that will index RSS feeds every 10 minutes from the major news outlets in the state of Indiana. You can view a full list of sites I am indexing and how many articles I have indexed here:

Not bad for 2 days of indexing huh? Tomorrow I plan on really hitting the algorithm hard. I want to add a certain “weight” to each site so the larger news providers are more likely to appear towards than top then say the podunk times. My goal for this site is to make a single source for Indiana news and keep it very clean. So far so good! More to come.
