Mahalo.com is in ALPHA–that means not ready for users, but looking for feedback. :-)


Kevin Rose dugg us!! http://www.digg.com/tech_news/Mahalo_We_re_here_to_help

Today my team launched our latest project Mahalo.com. It’s a human-powered search engine. We’ve already completed the top 4,000 search terms on the Internet and we hope to do 10,000 by the end of the year.

Our Mission: To help people…. a lot.

Please take a look at our results and compare the ones we have side by side with machine powered search by folks like Google, Ask, Yahoo, Technorati, AOL, and MSN. I think you’ll find that humans can really help make search results better.

Feedback is not only welcome, I’m begging you for it! That’s the whole point of our ALPAH: Tell us how to make search suck less! We’re listening and we want to help… in fact, our tag line is “We’re here to help!” The comments below are open so have at it, or post your thought to your own blog and I’ll link to your comments (keep them constructive of course).

Here’s the press release for today’s launch, which took place at the Wall Street Journal’s D Conference (thank Kara and Walt for including me in such an amazing event!). It also has details of our funding including our lead investors Sequoia Capital, Elon Musk, and Newscorp.

You’ll probably be able to find some more feedback on the Mahalo project at these links over the next two days:
