Cuil Is Not That Kewl

You’d think that after Google, nobody would even dare to venture into the search engine market. That apparently doesn’t include some former Googlers who launched Cuil – the newest search engine that describes its mission as “to index the whole Internet” and “analyze and sort out its pages so you get relevant results.”

Cuil (pronounced “cool”) claims to have a “fundamentally different approach” to search engines due to its new architecture and algorithms. Sounds good in theory, but how does it actually do in reality?

Survey: Most Popular Open Source CMS

This was interesting, spurred some feedback on CMSWire.com. Yes, open source is hot, but the study is just a high school popularity contest, really. The single fact of leaving Alfresco out speaks for the quality of this “survey.”

Water & Stone, a web development company specializing in Open Source technologies, released a popularity survey of open source content management systems. In the analysis of 19 of the most prominent open source content management systems, Water and Stone evaluated CMS’s on the basis of Rate of Adoption and Brand Strength, as well as a variety of other viability indicators and trends.

Movable Type 4.2 – Faster, Prettier and Nearly Ready

A pre-release announcement, lotsa new features. Overall, a well-rounded release. Now, how do we upgrade? Is it gonna hurt?

From 4.0 in the summer of 2007 to 4.1 in early 2008, Six Apart is about to grace us with yet another shiny and new version of Movable Type sometime this summer. While the exact release date has not yet been revealed — think early August — the 4.2 version looks like something worth the wait. The suspense is further fueled by the MT team’s bold comments revolving around the statement that this is “one of the most important upgrades to Movable Type ever.”
