Announcing phase 1 of PeARS, codename 'Orchard': a decentralised Web search system allowing people to easily index their favourite web pages (i.e. produce a computer-readable, searchable representation of the pages' content). Its main feature is the ability to convert a small index into a greyish, unassuming picture, called a 'snow pod'. Snow pods are the mini-weapons of the indexing revolution: infinitely shareable, combineable, the building blocks of the people's Internet.
