I’m a fan of Jimmy Wales and Wikipedia (when used correctly) and I’m a strong believer in what I would term editorial-based or human-assisted search to augment algorithmic-based search (Google, et al). However, the Sunday Times’ headline, Founder of Wikipedia plans search engine to rival Google,” sounds about as likely as Google or Yahoo! announcing they are going to launch a wiki that will rival Wikipedia. But, hey: good luck to ’em all.

*Wikirhea (or wikiria): A term I just made up that refers to non-stop, endless news about wikis.
