    Jun 14 2011: We got lucky with Larry and Sergey for sure. They may have set an example for others like Matt Mullenweg and Mark Zuckerberg -all principled leaders coming from something more than just replacement software.

    If we have to wait for AltaVista to keep improving, Microsoft may have taken over search. Not saying that would have been bad. I'm only saying that Google provided way more than an algorithm. Just my humble opinion. (Disclosure: I earn a portion of my income from reselling Google Apps)
