I say we build [[crowdsourced search]] using an [[Agora]].

Who is with me?

anagora.org/node/crowdsourced-
anagora.org/node/agora

If you are, please boost or share.

It could work like this:

1. A search query is sent to an Agora.
2. The Agora encodes the query as a node title; that means (currently) running it through unicode-slugify.
3. The Agora serves the node in question.

Because nodes are crowdsourced, this seems sufficient to try to implement crowdsourced internet search.

The Agora already supports [[go]] links, and those make it so that many nodes already have "suggested results".

Now... does this approach exist somewhere else already? I'm not aware. But if it does, please let me know and I'll redirect my efforts :)
