    Could be great, although I wonder how they are going to tackle people trying to get themselves to the top of the results.

    That's how I felt about AltaVista until Google came along.

    As for people trying to skew search results, I'm sure the same will happen as with wikipedia: the community will catch on quickly and set it straight and a ban to the offending ISP.

    Well they seems to do moderatly well with Wikipedia. Besides if companies do it, surely it would mean bad PR? In my opinion wikipedia is the best web site in the world, hopefully the creators can have the same success with a search engine.
