Wikipedia founder says to challenge the GOOG - Yahoo! Finance

"The on-line collaboration responsible for Wikipedia plans to build a search engine to rival those of Google Inc. (NasdaqGS:GOOG - News) and Yahoo Inc. (NasdaqGS:YHOO - News), the founder of the popular Internet encyclopaedia said on Thursday."

"Wikia Inc., the commercial counterpart to the non-profit Wikipedia, is aiming to take as much as 5 percent of the lucrative Internet search market, Jimmy Wales said at a news conference in Tokyo.
"The idea that Google has some edge because they've got super-duper rocket scientists may be a little antiquated now," he said."
