Narcissistic Search Engine?

I have just combined Google Blog Search, Google Customized Search Engine and Google Marker to produce a search engine for my Folk Knowledge Management Framework. "What diff does that make?", you may ask. For starters, the search engine can be populated by more relevant entries. Think: ability to upload items for more precise results. It should work for me. I stress-tested it with the keyword "joelogs" and discovered that 382 entries from diverse sources reference that item. Whether this really works for other users' purposes remains to be seen. I got the idea from Harry McCracken. You can access My Search Engine here. You can even help refine the engine. No wonder it comes labelled coop in its URL.
