Gada.be Searching

Posted by: Rob Hof on October 11, 2005

Chris Pirillo has debuted a new meta-search engine, gada.be. Apparently, it’s getting hit pretty hard, so the performance isn’t yet up to snuff, but if he gets that straightened out, it looks pretty neat. TechCrunch has a review. Gada.be runs search queries through Google News, Wikipedia, Flickr, and a bunch of other sites, so results can be interesting. Kind of the ultimate mash-up. It’s set up to be especially swift for folks on mobile devices, as Pirillo explains. Worth checking out. (And please do—maybe your searches will replace the naughty words and phrases that currently populate the latest-searches category.)

I need to create something less interesting next time. :) Seriously, we've got more RAM and servers on order, and will be in place within the next couple of days.
