Entity Extraction in Fast Search for SharePoint: Great article!

I just discovered a great article on a great blog about FAST Search for SharePoint (FS4SP) by Trond Øivind Eriksen of Comperio in Norway. Comperio is a FAST partner, and has been involved in a number of innovative projects involving FAST ESP and now FS4SP.

The article that originally caught my attention is about 'entity extraction' - what Microsoft now calls 'property extraction' in FS4SP. He addresses 'black list' and 'white list' terms that you want to include in the facets/properties you display in results lists; and, even cooler, he provides the example the way God intended things to be run - via scripting (in this case, PowerShell).

Actually I found his blog most helpful; I'm certainly adding it to my 'must read' list. You may find it helpful as well!
