Hey, I was just notified that my proposal to speak on Apache Lucene at the Utah Open Source Conference was accepted. The conference is October 8 - 10. I will also give a short discussion on Hibernate Search as it applies to the Lucene engine and how it fixes some of Lucene's shortcomings.
If you get a chance attend the conference. The admission change is minimal and if you volunteer to help it's free admission!!
Hope to see you there.
