Wiki Search depends on volunteers


Online encyclopaedia, Wikipedia, wants to launch its own search operation using unpaid volunteers. Wikia Search is to be launched next week by Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales.

He claims that volunteers will improve search technology because they will see the entries as they go up and will not be influenced by any companies. The same principle was behind the introduction of the galley slave in Ancient Greece, although it remains an open question who is steering the ship.

Wikipedia has been attacked for being biased and open to manipulation by political and personal interests. Wikia Search has been open to invitation-only testing for a few weeks and will go public on January 7.
