Introducing Kosmix search, watch out Google and Wikipedia

After catching a quick tweet from Robert Scoble I stumbled across a live video feed Scoble was producing with the folks from Kosmix.

Kosmix is an "alternative search engine" that received $20 million of funding from Time Warner in December 2008. If you search for a topic in Kosmix instead of a list of results, you get a full page of facts, content and user opinion from sites like Wikipedia, Google Search Results, Flickr, Ebay and Twitter.

Searching for Neowin provides our latest news, latest tagged flickr photos and our YouTube content. It's a pretty impressive aggregator of content for trending topics like Obama.

If you're researching a topic for school, work or to win that bet with your buddy then this will certainly help you get away from the mundane Google search results and pure facts from Wikipedia and offer you a little more to your searches.

Give it a go and let us know what you think in the comments, Wikipedia or Google search killer?
