Last night I did a talk on Thinking Sphinx at Boston.rb.
The slides are below.
Evan's blog post with the benchmarks can be found here. There are links to other benchmarks and details.
The process library I alluded to is called God.
- Thinking Sphinx
- Delayed Job (for delta indexing)
- Workling Delta Indexer

Let me know what you thought of the talk and the slides. I hope you found it helpful!
