SearchMash is broken. Every time I try going there it redirects to:

sorry.searchmash.com

What the heck is going on in the plex these days? Are they all drunk?

SearchMash doesn't appear to be a service that is designed for users at the moment. Seems to be a place of Google to test new ideas, so I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't work at times.

Thats pretty weird. I randomly checked it this morning (about 14 hours ago) and it was working fine. There was that NY Times article this morning...could have created renewed interest in it.

searchmash.com/search/Colophon

Hi Phillip
I thought you might be interested to learn that Google's Searchmash seems to have disappeared. Pity. I rather liked it.
Happy New Year

It was working for me last night and it's working today too. It's just very, very slow getting to the home page. Once I'm there, it's fine though – just like the day it was released. (I'm in the UK.)
