Russell rants, and he’s right. I have my own rant about this, at its core is the open/closed issue. On the one hand you have an open platform, the web, that sports a robust ecology with all sorts of innovation and competition.

I totally agree. I’m on deadline right now for the final manuscript of my book, but the site is here. Once you sign up, your search history will be integrated into every Google search you do. This is a major move for Google, and I’ll have an essay as to why later.
