It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
CDecker and I are working on reimplementing Bitcoin in Python. I'm not sure 100% what will come of this, but I plan to at least fully document the network protocol on our Google Code page: http://code.google.com/p/pybitcoin/
Basically, I'm trying to come up with a formal specification for Bitcoins as a documentation effort to keep track of the "rules of the road" in terms of how Bitcoins clients interact with one another. This document is intended to focus on the core functionality of the network, and in time it should contain all of the information necessary to create a complete implementation of Bitcoins from scratch in a "clean-sheet" design.
I've complained about this in the past, and I'm putting my money where my mouth is. For now, I'm simply going to try and pull the information from the source code as possible, although I would appreciate adding some of the philosophical underpinnings into this document as well. This is not a FAQ, but a rather a technical document going into the fine details of Bitcoins.
