And, you know, while we're busy not blogging about politics or New Orleans, we thought it about time to give a local venture a little press (we stress "little," because we get as much traffic as the local antique store on a Monday). There's a kewl new search engine in town--literally--called Huckabuck. Why should you care? What's the skinny? According to its promoter, Paige, whose PR experience we question (see above), asked real nice for us to write about it. (I even offered her a chance to post about it, but she preferred that I do it--and no, they're not paying me or giving me a gift basket or anything.) Huckabuck is so non-non-non-non-non-egregious because it lets you "tune" your search with a cool little equalizer thingee. Meaning that you can emphasize (or de-emphasize) results from six different search engines, including Google and Technorati. So it's a blogger's dream. Can't find what you're looking for? Just re-tune your search. Meta-search-engines have been around for years, but this is the first one that lets you do this. Tres cool.
