Cuil Est? Again on Easy Predictions
While surfing the web recently, I came across a chart published by TechCrunch.
You may remember this dreamlike search engine promising a revolution in Internet search, by indexing a previously unimaginable number of web pages.
Cuil’s fiasco proves that, without innovative technologies and/or approaches, even the most advertised and financed companies (even those founded by Google’s anointeds, in this specific case), are destined to fail.
It seems everything turned out to be a marketing operation, until now without any real effect on the daily activities of Internet users (but this was obvious from the start). Fortunately, money and names are not enough to obtain success: we need innovative ideas and the ability to turn them into real and useful products in relatively short timeframes.
