Interesting thoughts here. And pretty scary, too. It´s equally frustrating
and surprising that there is no larger public debate on this.

Thanks for the link!
As Argenton & Prüfer argue
(http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1808624), the crucial
role that large-scale and highly granular use data plays for search quality
(defined as user satisfaction) means that the leading search engine is
necessarily also the best one. A colleague and I have recently tried to show
that this situation is a systematic effect of current market configurations
and only highly proactive regulatory intervention could change that.
What is actually surprising, then, is that there are still alternatives. ,-)
