Danny Sullivan interviews Jimmy Wales about the “Google killer” wiki search

I guess it must be some cool search-engine-optimization trick to release a newsworthy interview on a Friday night before a holiday weekend because search guru Danny Sullivan has just posted a Q&A With Jimmy Wales on Search Engine Land about the new wiki-powered search engine Wales (founder of Wikipedia) has announced. Wales says, once again, he didn’t tell the New York Times he was not out to “kill Google”:


It’s just the development starting. We’re not producing a Google killing search engine in three months.”

Underscoring his commitment not to kill Google, Wales says the search engine is being built with open-source software Nutch and Lucene. (Wait, that came out wrong.)
