The Wikisearch Screenshot Isn’t Wikiasari, So What Is It?
December 26th, 2006

A couple of days ago TechCrunch posted a screenshot of what was believed to be an early version of the new Wikiasari search engine that Jimmy Wales has been talking about. And it was blogged here on Smart Mobs.

But Wales is saying that the screenshot has nothing to do with the project, in a comment to that post and also on the Wikiasari page on Wikia (since taken down, but screenshot is here).

The Wikiasari page also now gives a bit about the background of the project, and Wikisearch is not mentioned. The project was originally called 3apes.

ars technica on Wikiasari

I know about the Screenshot – I posted it on from, where I got the info about Wikiasari in the first place.

Then Jimmy Whales wrote me and told me the picture had nothing to do with his new search engine – so I took it down (and joined his email group as well – to keep me updated).
