SearchMash Dead

Why did Google kill it? Well, maybe it had to do with Google launching SearchWiki a few days prior? Maybe it has to do with Google cutting costs or maybe something else.

There didn't seem to be an official response from Google on why it is missing. But we can make our own assumptions.
