I don't understand the critical reaction to Wikiseek. No one here would
criticize a new search engine that indexed the whole web *including*
Wikipedia, so there's no reason to criticize a search engine that
indexes *only* Wikipedia.

I also don't see how Wikiseek could hurt Wikipedia. If anything, more
avenues to Wikipedia will *increase* the number of readers and editors.

And in the event that Wikiseek is successful, the Foundation might even
receive some sizable contributions.
