> 4. Search engines really get me : 'Yahoo' was started by a bunch of intellectual elites, and some of the other's are far too commercially orientated to benefit our development. Those of us with less grey matter could more easily identify with a name like za.zoo*, and aardvark.co.za for environmentally friendly searching.
I hardly think I would classify the founders of "Yahoo!" as intellectual
elites, just computer nerds in Jeans who had an idea and did well with
it...and Yahoo! is just as commercial as the rest of them. I took a
look at dogpile and found it interesting, but think I prefer
metacrawler.com as a starting search engine because it consolidates
duplicate entries from various search engines. I would then use dogpile
and what is wrong with commercial? It has to be paid for somehow....
