I have just made a detail study of Cuil that who is behind the scene

I found there are three ex Google workers and one from IBM and One from AltaVista Here is the detail:

  • Anna Patterson: worked on Google’s search index
  • Russell Power: worked on Google’s search index
  • Louis Monier: founder of the AltaVista search engine
  • Tom Costello: worked on IBM’s WebFountain project.

So people behind it know the search better
