You will remember that yesterday cuil was released upon the world with as much fanfare as possible. I was unimpressed. I’ve had a few hits here since then, mostly variations on “Cuil” and “Useless” which express a great deal of the emotion that Cuil engendered. Maybe because of the lack of Hubris that Cuil showed, maybe because they copped Flickr’s color scheme for their logo. I don’t care; Cuil is just not that great.
That aside a commenter (John) pointed out Clusty which I promptly checked out; ego surf? Check. Deep Search on my real info? Check. Satisfaction? Check.
Nice One John, I’ll have to keep Clusty on my mind when searching.
I read about cuil this morning while looking through the posts on my iGoogle page. Interested in new things and not willing to simply discount it out of hand, I fired up the ethernets and typed my name and interests into it’s waiting inputs.
And didn’t find the website you are reading this on.
Not at all.
Not even if I searched for things I knew were on this page.
So, yeah. Cuil sucks.
Sorry guys, you have a long way to go if someone can’t ego surf their own website from your engine.
