Cuil, a mini-review

July 29, 2008 1:35 PM

Cuil is a new search engine, apparently developed by a couple of ex-Googlers.

The Good:

Unlike Google, Cuil still has me as the first result of a search for "Charles Miller". As such, it fulfils the most important purpose of any search engine: stroking my ego.

The Bad:

Why did it decide my copyright notice was appropriate summary text for my blog, and who the hell is that bald guy?

Update: Brett Porter has been having more fun...

Update 2: Co-worker Tom Davies does have his photo on the front page of a Cuil search for his name... but we can't quite work out what it has to do with the linked page.

Final Update: The Register shows that it could be worse. (NSFW)
