Archive for the ‘Launch’ Category
Jimmy was again cornered today in IRC and when asked about the Search Wikia project and a possbile launch date he responded with the following:
[15:14] <jwales> the search engine *will* launch before the end of the year, probably in private beta first, and then open to the public in early january. No specific dates are certain yet. But sooon.
well there we go then, maybe we will see a launch date in December, as previously mentioned , just not the whole thing.
So Jimmy announced today on the mailing list that “we are now doing some preliminary crawls in anticipation of the upcoming launch.” A wiki page was also created at http://search.wikia.com/wiki/Whitelist and everyone has been asked to contribute towards the list of pages to be crawled by the new servers.
Jimmy continued in the email saying, “Information is going to change quickly in the next 2-3 weeks, but I’m getting excited.”
