This morning I wrote about the new search engine, Cuil, after which it appeared that the new kid on the block suffered some massive growing pains. Servers were overloaded and the system went down briefly. What was even more embarrassing was a news story on CNN.
They were trying to show the attributes of Cuil, and were having problems. When they entered in the name George Washington, they received a nothing found message. Not a good thing for the folks at Cuil. Though growing pains are to be expected, it was not the best way to try to show your stuff. Especially since Cuil was being compared to Google.
I don’t the folks at Google have anything to fear. In fact I bet they really enjoyed the day. :-)
