Linux.com :: Evolution beta is a powerful personal data mining tool

Linux.com :: Evolution beta is a powerful personal data mining tool

ok this is both cool and scary.
this is a Data mining application of the highest order

Very thorough, very profound

it is in VERY early beta, the interface, frankly isn't that good.

I did a simple search for myself. and within a couple minutes, quite a bit of info was returned, from websites I had subscribed to places i visited, various e-mail and instant messenger accounts.

now mind you all of his data is and always has been freely available.

but imagine searching by had for a name on face book, Google, yahoo, AOL, AIM, ICQ, MSN, Hotmail Lycos, Google etc. etc.

the typing alone would take hours, not to mention sorting through the hundreds ion irrelevant entries.

anyone interested in quick and easy data acquisition should check this out
