Is the Search Industry that Cuil?

Earlier this week, the Cuil search engine (from past Googlers) was launched, ridiculed by the SEO community and just about everyone else. In a Search Engine Land post, Barry showed the "relevancy" of the images as related to notable figures in the search industry. Barry Schwartz (yes, our Barry) is the renown psychologist, Danny Sullivan is the race car driver, Dave Naylor is a can of spam, and I'm a photo of a scantily clad Danny Sullivan.

We tried to do the Cuil search on a lot of forum personalities, but we didn't get so far. Instead, we saw some more industry figures, and here they are:

Here's a photo of Jerry Yang, or so they say:

Cuil: Is this Jerry Yang?

Here's Eric Enge posing as Bill Slawski:

Cuil: Eric Enge is Apparently Bill Slawski

This, supposedly, is Jeremy Schoemaker, aka Shoemoney:

Cuil: Is this Shoemoney?

This is supposedly Chris Boggs. I've never seen this person before in my life and I know what Chris Boggs looks like.

Cuil: This isn't Chris Boggs

Here's forum personality Kim Krause Berg. Who is this lady for real? I don't know!

Cuil: Is this Kim Krause Berg?

And Matt Cutts debuts The Lisa Barone:

Cuil: This certainly is not Lisa Barone

Here's the most relevant picture EVER: Matt Cutts attacks Greg Boser -

Cuil: Greg Boser gets Attacked by Matt Cutts

If anything at all, you can have a lot of fun with Cuil. That's the extent of it, though.
