Another Competitor to Google

I wrote about Powerset few weeks ago. Timesonline reports that Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia and Amazon plans to launch a search engine early next year.

Amazon didn't do well with its A9. It's pouring money into this new venture to beat Google in search game. "Social Search" is going to be hot, everyone thinks so. Jimmy Wales plans to use army of Wikipedia volunteers to make the search results more relevant to search terms. It will be very interesting to see how this is played out.
