Storify is "a company building tools to help journalists, bloggers and experts curate the real-time Web."  As you can imagine, search functionality for this kind of tool can be a crucial feature, and this week, the service finally added search by using an open source technology you may have heard of: Apache Solr.

Vincent Battaglia, a developer at Storify is the one who let us in on this little secret that wasn't clear in the announcement on Storify's blog.



Users can now search for a place, news event, subject, or they can search by a user, or stories that mention themselves.

I think the fact that Twitter uses Lucene may still be tipping the balance in favor of Solr/Lucene when some of these web companies choose Solr over ElasticSearch.  There's certainly a very vocal group in favor of ElasticSearch that are trying to increase the number of converts from the established Solr/Lucene camp.
