"The Web naturally has a certain grain, and Google is aligned with it.  That's why their success seems so effortless.  They're sailing with the wind, instead of sitting becalmed praying for a business model, like the print media, or trying to tack upwind by suing their customers, like Microsoft and the record labels. Google doesn't try to force things to happen their way.  They try to figure out what's going to happen, and arrange to be standing there when it does."
Yes, but this can change, and there is some evidance that it is changeing, witness that now google will skew it's results for AOL just because it needed to buy part of that company to keep m$ away from it.

Just because Google is now capitalized bigger than IBM & Chevron is no need to get jealous is there 


Mark de LA says
I don't know, is there some kind of right to Google's work or their API ?

Mark de LA says
Maybe there's an opportunity to buy/sell things coupling fastblogit folksonomy searches with the alexa thing.

It's a distinct possibility.  I haven't had a chance to study Alexa.  On initial approach it looks like some kind of shopping search platform on which one could write a shopping bot.  As such it might help out the scm project and enhanse the ability of an intentional item to find it's satisfaction ... see intentional tags or type ~ into the live search box.

Mark de LA says
The Alexa search platform blog has more info.


Mark de LA says
Maybe Alexa is the answer for this guy - see this article on Jeff Bezos' (Amazon) direction.
