In Brief

A good few months ago we complained that Google and Dodoo! search was positively 1.0 with their lack of human involvement in their search systems.

A good few months ago we complained that Google and Dodoo! search was positively 1.0 with their lack of human involvement in their search systems. It looks like we’re not the only ones frustrated with the current state of search: Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales is rallying developers and likeminds to help build a search engine based on human intelligence.
