Wiki Search - More Transparency

Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia plans to launch Wikia Search which is a search engine service similar to Google, Yahoo and the like. Users will be able filter sites and rank search results using a model similar to that of Wikipedia. The service he says will enhance transparency by allowing users to see how search results are arrived at, something which none of the "Big Boys" like Yahoo (or) Google offer. Launch date - Jan 7th
