David Hayden, of Critical Path and Magellan reknown, today launched a new search engine called JetEye. The concept is interesting – you can create your own set of search results (“jetpaks”), which you can share with others and make searchable. This combines the idea of the architecture of participation and the force of many with the currently in vogue concept of social search.
David gave me a tour of Jeteye late last week, and as with many of these ideas, it really all depends on whether or not folks pick up the habit (the Wondir QA engine comes to mind, for example.) For now, it’s a promising start up, and the key will be whether it reaches critical mass.
