Sun’s Search feature is one of those services like running water that we tend to take for granted. Low Bit, Sun Search and Blogs Engineer, showed me this great search query:
Search for this on Sun blogs: link:sun.com
It’ll tell you that, as of this moment, of the 85,238 blog posts, 34,909 of them have at least one link driving traffic back to another sun.com page (includes the main website, other Sun blogs, other sun.com sites like wikis.sun.com, developer.sun.com, etc.). Some might say “big deal”, but that’s ~35k more cross pollination links that wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for Sun bloggers engaging in open conversations.
