Overall, Kreeo seems a very promising product – they can do wonders if they can mine the data semantically.
But here is a candid feedback – the entire user experience is way too overwhelming for a normal user to understand/use the product. It’s just not clear why would one use this and not directly go to the plain-and-simple Wikipedia?
Of course, too much of AJAX might hurt them in SEO, but am sure the team has thought about this.
Do give Kreeo a spin – it’s currently in closed alpha, but if you are interested in trying it out, do leave a comment.
