My Wikiwix and OpenDemocracy

Filed under: wikiwix — Matthieu @ 18:56

Dear all!

Recently, our firm, Linterweb, had the pleasure to introduce you its new service, My Wikiwix.
You already know Wikiwix, the semantic search engine run by the web company Linterweb that gives only results out of the databases of the various Wikimedia Foundation projects.
My Wikiwix, as you may know, is a search engine as well.
The difference with Wikiwix is just that you can run My Wikiwix on your own personal website.
My Wikiwix uses the technologies initially developed for the searches on the Wikimedia projects with Wikiwix.
The user interface is already available in English, French and German, and will in the future be available also in Spanish.
Well, lately, a lot has happened, and we can now announce that My Wikiwix is fully available and usable, and that the famous website OpenDemocracy decided to add the My Wikiwix search box on its start page.
You, too, can integrate My Wikiwix on your website and freely enjoy the use of our semantic search engine.
All you have to do is to follow the instructions on this page: http://my.wikiwix.com/.
If you would like to learn more about My Wikiwix, we encourage you to visit and read our blog, especially the article “My Wikiwix, the search engine that will fit you“.

Just give it a try!

We hope that you will enjoy your time with My Wikiwix, and we wish you a Happy New Year!

Yours sincerely , Matthieu.

Linterweb is a web company that, for now several years, has been developing various Wikipedia oriented programs, including:

  • Wikiwix, a semantic web search engine that gives only results out of the databases of the Wikimedia Foundation’s projects; My Wikiwix, your own search engine for your own website; wikiwix.mobi, a mobile version of Wikiwix;
  • Okawix, the offline Wikipedia browser free of copyrights and free of charge that allows you to read offline archives of the articles of the various Wikimedia Foundation projects, as well as archives of your own website; those archives are available for download on the website of Okawix;
  • a DVD of around 2000 articles from the English speaking Wikipedia; a USB flash drive that contains the version 0.7 of the English speaking Wikipedia;
  • a program that archives the external web pages of the Wikipedia articles (that is, the web pages outside Wikipedia but linked from a Wikipedia article), so that their content remains available and that those external links don’t get broken; this program is used automatically, in particular, for all external links of the French speaking Wikipedia.
