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.
Cuil maybe useless, but Clusty shows promisePublished by NiteMayr on July 29, 2008
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.
