OrganizedWisdom.com is a human-powered search service for health (or human search engine) launched in alpha test in October 2006 by Steven H. Krein and Unity Stoakes. As of July 2008, the project is in beta test. It differentiates itself from algorithmic search engines like Google, as well as other directory sites like DMOZ and Yahoo by tracking and building hand-crafted result sets for many of the currently popular health search terms.
OrganizedWisdom Health employs human editors to review websites and write WisdomCards (or search engine results pages) that include text listings, as well as other media, such as photos and video. Each OrganizedWisdom WisdomCard includes links to the top five sites, as well as other categorized information, and additional web pages. The company also pays freelance health guides to create WisdomCards in the company's Guide Program - the pages are approved by a full time staff member prior to appearing in the main index.
OrganizedWisdom's approach is similar to Mahalo.com's strategy, except that OrganizedWisdom focuses exclusively on health related search terms and employs physician reviewers into its training and review process.
OrganizedWisdom has over 10,000 WisdomCards in over 50 health categories currently in its WisdomCard Library.
