    The young and the hip.... Don't discount it unless it is a piece of crap. Should be easy for it to eclipse Bing and Yahoo

    MC Hammer is actually a pretty prolific entrepreneur. But what he is describing is more of a feature than a complete solution. And there is the adoption problem... other search engines have come along but gained zero traction. Nobody can unseat the big G.

    I've wondered quite a bit about the marketability of "niche" search engines. Specifically hip hop/rap. Instead of Google, what if there was a Wizzle or Hizzizzle, and it brought up new hip hop, upcoming hip hop, articles, etc. on the screen when you search for something like "Nicki Minaj" etc., in a funky non-conformist way. Its the only way I can think of that you could compete and steal market share from Google, by winning a culture war.

    Then again, maybe the time is right for something like MC Hammer's idea. I have some sites where I get almost as much traffic from Yandex as I do from Google. Yandex. Who woulda thought.

    It is nice that MC is launching Wiredoo.

    Have you tried googling 'wierdoo mchammer'? Interesting results. :)
