Input Requested

As a few of you have mentioned, I've not been posting as much lately. Maritime activities have been slow and I've been bringing myself back up to speed on web development technologies - but for a maritime reason. A few months ago Mystic Seaport announced that we would be leading the development of a National Maritime Digital Library and thats where my spare energies are going.

The main part that we are focusing on right now is developing a maritime search engine using the Google Custom Search Interface. This will help maritime researchers, people working in subjects that might not naturally come to the top a web-wide search, to more easily find the information they need.

To that end we're requesting that any and all interested parties:
  1. Try out the search and make comments on the results
  2. Add the urls for maritime sites to the growing online list. (The "Add a new Web Resource" link is in the upper left hand corner.)- The results off your added link should show up immediately, please let me know if they don't.
