Comments: One Google to Rule Them All

Comments

A P2P search engine could be very cool, although I'm a bit sceptical about the indexing power of such a tool; SETI@Home still relies on central storage to make the data useful. A P2P army of indexers joined at the hip with something like aspseek (http://www.aspseek.org/ ) would be mighty nice, though.

In the spirit of countering Google's growing dominance, we over at resist!ca have started a search engine: http://search.resist.ca/ for just activist stuff. Right now the index is at about 200,000 pages, and growing. Take a look. Try searching for "McDonalds"; it's an awesome web once you take the corporate shit out.

I agree with you 100%. I've already been noticing that alot of excellent websites don't show up on Google, or atleast not in the first 10 pages of search results (so they might as well not exist to most people). What I'd like to see is a return to good 'ol fashioned link swapping between independent websites, thereby removing some of the dependence people have on any search engine or centralized directory. That's how things were 6 or 7 years ago, before the internet started getting crassly commercial.

Lots of issues with privacy related to Google, too, though it seems most people don't give a rat's ass about privacy and are actually very hostile to anyone that does.

Sorry for the duplicate posting! Seems there's something wrong with your posting script.
