Dear Wiki user,

The following page has been changed by GrantIngersoll:

  Initial marketing pitch (feel free to improve):
- Apache Lucene contains some of the best open source search technology there is. Lucene projects
allow you to add search functionality to web sites and applications and to index anything
ranging from individual documents to corporate intranets or the entire Internet. Lucene even
gives you tools for automatic classification and clustering of large data sets. (Ted:) Lucene
is conducive to creative misuse for recommendations, machine learning and large scale matrix
+ Apache Lucene is a robust and powerful, open source, search library that powers search and
discovery in thousands of websites and applications ranging from large corporations like Apple
Computer and CNET to startups creating next generation intelligent applications.
+ Over the years, Lucene has grown beyond just a pure Java library into a complete ecosystem
of tools designed to help developers and businesses solve critical information access problems.
 Whether it’s leveraging the power and simplicity of Apache Solr’s  search and faceting
capabilities or the large scale crawling features of Nutch, chances are Lucene has a solution
to meet your needs.  Moreover, with the recent additions of Apache Tika (content extraction),
Apache Mahout (machine learning) and Apache Droids (crawling framework), as well as ports
of Lucene to languages like C, Python and .NET, it has never been easier to build search capabilities
into any application, no matter the scale.
+ The Lucene Track at ApacheCon will feature a full slate of training, talks and networking
on the entire Lucene ecosystem.  Talks will cover both the technical details and the business
aspects of Lucene.  Networking events will help connect you with the creators of Lucene and
other users.
