    Wikipedia comming up with an SE?
    Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, is set to launch an internet search engine with amazon.com that he hopes will become a rival to Google and Yahoo!

    Mr Wales has begun working on a search engine that exploits the same user-based technology as his open-access encyclopaedia, which was launched in 2003.

    This is going to be interesting. Wikipedia already ranked so high on google search when I want to find anything about famous people. If wiki is smart, they would target specific type of search, not being a direct competators with google, msn, or yahoo.

    Won't it be abused by spammers?

    We've theorized about this for a long time. Now it appears the dream of another SE is about to become a reality. I too have to read up on this one and hopefully the competition will benefit us all.

    Check this thread out:

    It's not a search engine, it's just wikipedia site search. Google, MSN, Yahoo, Ask.com search the internet. This just searches wikipedia.
