Dave Winer has posted an idea [1] that I think would make a neat
little demo in the crossover area between LOD and traditional
keyword/linkrank search. His suggestion is for a search engine to
offer a preference to allow the searcher to enter their blog URI
alongside the usual text search, allowing the engine to provide more
focused results. (Curiously he elides the part about what mechanisms
are used behind the scenes :-)

I'm pretty sure someone around here will have most if not all of the
necessary pieces already in place (SearchMonkey, Sindice...), but I
don't recall seeing a really minimal UI, like:

Search Terms :               [          ]
Home Page or WebID :   [          ]

Come to think of it, if anyone has a dedicated RDF-backed RSS/Atom
aggregator, I'd rather like a blog search tool like this. SPARQL regex
would probably be adequate for the text search part, with maybe
derived foaf:primaryTopics from documents being lined up with
foaf:interests pulled via the WebID.
