Thoughts on Cuil, In Pictures

Apparently some former Google folk decided they could do search better. Enter Cuil, which is becoming a synonym for fail.

ROC for Fail

UPDATE(S):

  • Cuil does a number on Patrick’s iFroggy Network.
  • Someone, erm, sidestepped the Wikipedia neutrality guidelines in the Cuil article.
  • I’m quoted in Veronica Belmont’s analysis of Cuil.
  • The Girl Riot also points to my LinkedIn fail as an example of Cuil fail.
  • To be fair, things are improving a little bit, as I’m getting some more reliable results now. The “About Cuil” page no longer 404s, too. It still has a ways to go, and a lot of work to do both technically and in PR to overcome this absolutely terrible first impression.

Also, if you find this story worthy, please give it an ol’ Digg. :)
