Ex-Google Employee Developes Cuil - Hopes to Challenge Google

Anna Patterson is one smart search engine designer. So good, if fact, that her last search technology was purchased by Google in 2004. Now she is free of her non-compete clause and is unleashing Cuil (prenounced Cool) onto the Internet.

In doing so, she hopes to become the top search engine on the net. Cuil is currently online and looks impressive, although I've only had limited use of it as I write this.

More info on Cuil can be found in a CNN story, click here for that.

Cuil looks to be an interesting technology and the search engine wars are always fun to watch. Could this be the next "big thing"? Only time will tell.
