Note demo paper
MINERVA1 is a novel approach towards P2P Web search that connects an a-priori unlimited number of peers, each of which maintains a personal local database and a local search facility. Each peer posts a small amount of metadata to a physically distributed directory layered on top of a DHT-based overlay network that is used to efficiently select promising peers from across the peer population that can best locally execute a query. This paper proposes a live demonstration of MINERVA, showcasing the full information lifecycle: crawling web pages, disseminating metadata to a distributed directory, and executing queries online. We additionally invite all visitors to instantly join the network by executing a small piece of software.
