OK, so Wikia Search opened its alpha release up today. Naysayers lined up around the block to talk about how bad the results are, not understanding Wikia released a way to build a search engine with open source, not a finished product. I checked a few things out, made a disambiguation between me and some of the other cool women named Andrea James out there. I typed in the uberspam word “viagra“ and of course a spammer had already added a link to his site in the Mini-Article.
However, my favorite was when I started typing in other sex-related words (sex is of course a top search query). My profile came up as related on all of them. So if you type in “anal sex,” I come up as one of the the “people matching ‘anal sex.’” See the helpful screenshot above.
If that’s not an accomplishment, I don’t know what is.
