Watch Out Google: Here Comes Wikia Search

Here is some interesting news from the world of technology today:  the founder of Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales, says that Wikia, Inc. is ready to debut its own search engine, Wikia Search, next week on January 7.   While Wales readily acknowledges that Wikia Search is not able to compete with Google at this time, he hopes the contributions from users will help the search engine evolve into one more effective than Google and its competitors.  The service hopes to allow users to contribute to how pages are ranked and will also allow folks to edit search results.

You can read more about this project here at FOX News or here at The Washington PostWhat do you think?  Will you be trying out this new search engine?  Do you think this search engine will have the success of Wikipedia?
