Mahalo, the world’s first human-powered search engine, is actually probably powered by hydroelectric power, but humans do “find and organize the best links” for their search results. With lots of possible searches, Mahalo depends on lots of humans to create those results, including Part Time Guides, Mahalo Mentors, and Full Time Guides. One way to motivate these folks and bind the Mahalo community together is through promos. They even made a special page on their web site, Show Us Your Mahalo, where they feature user-submitted photos of folks with their Mahalo giveaways. Now that’s a great way to say thank you, which incidentally, is what Mahalo means in Hawaiian.
