Opinion: Wackypedia wants to take down Google

By on

Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales claims that his Wikia Search project will have Google quaking in its boots.

Speaking to the Global Brand Forum in Singapore, Wales thinks his team of high-ranking fake penis experts will bring tears to Google's eyes.

He said that Google, Yahoo and Microsoft dominate the Internet search engine market which Wales claims was caused some worry among web users.

He said that people didn’t want all of their traffic, and editorial control through one, two or three companies. They should be looking only at Wikipedia instead.

Wales said Wikia Search will run on an open platform, similar to the principles behind Wikipedia.

In other words, all results will be decided by sad losers, with chips on their shoulders, who can decide if sites are real and notable enough to have a right to be there.

On Wales' search engine we can bet you that the Everywhere Girl, Mike Mageek, and the INQUIRER will disappear overnight and Nick Farrell will become a Canadian boxer.
