    Wikia Search Launches With Google in Its Sight

    Declaring that Internet search is currently broken, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales is trying to fix it. And he wants your help. After several months of development and acquisitions to assemble the infrastructure needed to build a viable search engine, Wikia Search service goes live today. Wikia Search is a product of Wikia Inc., a for-profit company wholly separate from the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit organization that was founded in 2004 and oversees Wikipedia. Following a brief period of private alpha testing, today's unveiling is billed as a "public alpha release." Wales has freely admitted that today's launch is something of a test drive, and that the application will continue to see substantial modifications and updates.

    Will Wales do for search what he did for wikis? Find out at InternetNews.com.

      Good luck dethroning Google in the Internet Search arena... especially since I don't see where Google is "broken". 8)

      For the record, I search Wikipedia using Google. :D
