+ - Metaphorical Search Engine Looks for Un-thought-of Connections->

Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "Conventional search engines are definitely something of a paradox — you use them to find out new information regarding a certain topic, yet the top hits that you receive mostly contain information that everyone already knows. Not only does this hinder peoples' efforts to think about things in new ways, but it can also reinforce mistruths and stereotypes. That's where YossarianLives! comes in. Named after the main character in the paradox-centered book Catch-22, it's a "metaphorical search engine" that's designed to generate new knowledge instead of reinforcing existing knowledge."
