Powerset Your Wikipedia Experience

PARC spinout Powerset has released its public beta: a search facility across Wikipedia.

I like the way their search solution collates data from a range of sources within Wikipedia. I like the way this data is presented. However, I’m disappointed that they are only searching across Wikipedia. After all the hype and the build up, I would’ve thought Powerset could’ve been more ambitious and gone for a wider beta sample.

Watch the demo video, but be warned … it may leave you feeling underwhelmed:

One thought on “Powerset Your Wikipedia Experience

  1. I agree, technically I don’t think there is anything special about it. You ask a question in merely brings back all articles with that word and highlights the key word…..Whats so special about that. Also wikipedia, is already simple enough to use, I don’t see how all the fancy UI brings any more useful experience
