Submission + - Wikipedia,Jabber founders do open-source search

ardent99 writes: The creator of Jabber, Jeremie Miller, is joining Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales in building and open-source, community-driven search service called Search Wikia. They believe transparent algorithms and open-source code is a better alternative than proprietary engines. Now, with the addition of Miller, the are expanding the effort to include developing a standardized protocol for exchanging information between search engines, enabling distributed, collaborative search. They anticipate that such a service may have many of the same features, but also weaknesses, as Wikipedia such as the posting of inaccurate information and companies trying to influence what is posted. http://www.networkworld.com/news/2007/050107-searc h-wikia-hires-jabber-founder.html
