cagnol writes: The Washington Post reports that Jimmy Wales, the founder of online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, has announced the launch of a new open-source search engine: Wikia Search on January 7th, 2008. The project will allow the community to help rank search results, in a model close to Wikipedia. However the company is a for-profit organization. This new search is supposed to challenge Google and Yahoo.
"An organization dries up if you don't challenge it with growth."
-- Mark Shepherd, former President and CEO of Texas Instruments
