Bill Clinton enters the world of Internet search
On December 6, former President Bill Clinton attended the launch party of search engine Accoona at Tavern on the Green. Clinton's role in the venture is unclear, but the article notes that Accoona has pledged an undisclosed amount of money to the William J. Clinton Foundation. If Al Gore once claimed that he invented the Internet, will Bill Clinton one day claim that he invented the Internet search engine?
Clinton's role aside, can Accoona really take on Google and Yahoo! in the hyper-competitive Internet search market? Searchblog doesn't seem to think so, but many details about Accoona's super-secret China deal and proprietary artificial intelligence technology need to be worked out.
