Wikia, the search engine designed around the concept of wikis, has been launched in alpha. This means that a) it isn’t going to work as well as anyone wants, and b) no fair comparing it to Google et. al., except in the theoretical. In fact, we usually wouldn’t see software until the beta stage of development; this shows how much Wikia will rely on users.
There isn’t all that much to see yet, but the idea of an annotated search engine where the users provide feedback about the search results, which will then be used to improve future results, is tantalizing. Search 2.0 anyone?
