The Code Searchers:
According to LJ (Linux Journal): "In Journalism, three examples create a TREND and in Business Schools, professors teach that three competitors create a market category. These two tropes now apply to CODE SEARCH..."
Google, the number 1 search engine has spun off a searcher just for Coders (Hackers), called Code Search.
But Google isn't the first search to Kater to Koders (yeah, I'm going to replace a lot of C's for K's here...:).
THIS market category was started three years ago by Koders.com .
Sometime later, Krugle joined in with their Code Searcher, called Krugle.com (don't ask me why).
The big deal about Google jumping on the bandwagon is that it draws attention to a category of search that we might not know about.
These wonderful programs we run by clicking a button or icon, don't come out of thin air.
Real hackers, sometimes working on their own in the wee hours, create this magic.
And I for one think, that helping them with these Code Search Engines, is a REAL GOOD IDEA.
