Yet another take on search powered by people. It's interesting that they are using recently released Y! BOSS

Social network Me.dium is putting the power of its people into a new social search system. The search tool will combine the new Yahoo Search BOSS platform with results collected from Me.dium social sidebars and toolbars.

The toolbars are used by participants to share and endorse websites with others within the network, much like StumbleUpon, from which data Me.dium can rank sites based on popularity. Current figures put the number of URLs shared each day by Me.dium users at over 20 million.
