From any web page, clicking on the "Vivo Searchlight" button in your browser will initiate a search and find experts with expertise relevant to the content of the page.

Thanks for sharing John. That's a really a neat idea, even if the
results don't seem particularly relevant for some tests I tried. I was
curious how it does the matching of page text against the profiles. I
see from the description at http://vivosearchlight.org that
EleasticSearch is being used instead of Solr. Any chance Miles
Worthington (ok I googled) would be willing to share the source code
on his github account , or elsewhere?
