Zeitgeist attracting new Rockstars

This time of the year is just awesome. Around a year ago (same time) the Zeitgeist core team was created. GSoC 2009 blessed us with (The Great) Siegfried Gevatter and during UDS we got Markus (The Incredible) Korn as well as (The Magnificent) Mikkel Kamstrup...

After one year of almost fulltime development and 2 rewrites the engine reached a very stable condition. Now a new team is slowly taking shape, that are deploying Zeitgeist in applications.

nautilus-elementary zeitgeist - first draft from ammonkey on Vimeo.

The video is explained as follows:

The video show requests on the today events of zeitgeist. (of course i can choose the time period i want). And u can filter the results with a string as u type in the search entry (no return needed).

empty string = show all the result for the default time period.
if i type gaga it show all the files i opened today containing gaga, so in my case i show all the music files of Lady Gaga i listened today with rhyhtmbox.

the goal is to implement a bar like in the following mockup and perform zeitgeist browsing/search from nautilus.
