Y'know, I may have to take back that comment. I am trying to locate the reference that gave me the impression that Yelp was written in Perl, but now I have found a few references that seem to suggest it is Python.

Nevertheless, sometimes wheels need reinventing. I can't really adapt Yelp for personal use, but do imagine that the concept can be useful as kind of a "recommendation and review" platform. In other words, an app that can be used for specific purposes, say, a "Yelp for flowers" or a "Yelp devoted to trees" and so on.

Search goes on.
