swish-e gets a nod

Swish-e gets a nod in a recent ComputerWorld article:

   For instance, researchers at the Stanford Linear Accelerator
   Center (SLAC) in Menlo Park, Calif., recently needed a
   search tool to help them index and navigate an internal
   newsgroup with 600-plus posts per day. They needed a tool
   that was customizable and capable of handling the large
   volume of posted messages. After evaluating a number of
   commercial and open-source search products, SLAC chose the
   open-source Swish-e tool, both for its speed and low cost.

   "It doesn't do all that Google does ... but it turned out to
   be the fastest index engine," says Douglas Smith, an
   experimental support professional at SLAC. Smith notes that
   internal search requires different capabilities than public
   Internet search, where users don't know anything about the
   content they're searching.
