Is there any material published about this? I would be very interested  
to see Marks slides and hear about the discussion.

Rich, as you know there are a couple project in this area solar,  
compass, dlucene and katta and since all are open source I guess the  
easiest way to be involved is to join the mailing lists.

I only can speak for katta - we are very interested in getting more  
people involved to get other perspective. There is quite some activity  
in our project since our project is part of a upcoming production  
system, but low traffic in mailing list (So far all developers work in  
the same room).

You can find our mailing list on our source forge page:

Please keep in mind that katta is very young and compass or solr might  
be more interesting if you need something working now, though they  
might have different goals and focus than dlucene or katta.
