Re: [PhillyOnRails] Anyone know what 37signals is using for search?

It'd also be interesting to know what the 10 times slower option they used to be using is. My guess is they moved from a database related search to something built on top of some flavor of Lucene.
Maybe they were doing the old "select * from whatevers where whatever like something". Which, of course, is slow as mollasses. And perhaps they switched to something indexed like Ferret.

But it's hard to believe they would ever have been using something archaic like a DB search.
