The only way for information to be truly free is if the tools by which to find information are equally free as the information itself.
Lund, Sweden (PRWEB) October 27, 2009
King.info launches a search engine which derives its input from those using it. The results, descriptions for results and at what search terms the results should be found are all added by the very same users as those using the search engine for ordinary search queries. It is also the users of the search who are ranking results for various search terms by casting votes.
"There are no ranking algorithms or spiders crawling the web, instead think of this as a hybrid between a wiki and a traditional search engine", explains King.info founder Jonas Duxen.
King.info is structured as to encourage a dialogue between users building the search. Thus creating a community where users could tap into the knowledge of each other and gain synergy effects from the collective as a whole. The aim is to make search more of an open contributed project where everyone wanting to take part of building search could be able to do so.
"Today search is viewed as a closed, completed product where ordinary users have nothing to contribute more than using search to find whatever they are looking for. The goal with King.info is to change this passive view of search", says Jonas Duxen. He adds, "The only way for information to be truly free is if the tools by which to find information are equally free as the information itself."
