Shania Ender from Human Facts introduces the Open Search Foundation and its goals and explains why we all should leave our own comfort zone in order to give smaller search engines a chance – too, “even if that means that our search no longer yields almost a billion results or takes longer than 0.8 seconds.”

“In Europe, a group called the Open Search Foundation has proposed a plan to create a common internet index that can underpin many European search engines.”

Eine ausführliche Analyse über die Ziele und Organisation der Open Search Foundation und Kommentare zum Whitepaper finden sich auf Dragotin’s Blog. Er endet mit einem sicherlich zutreffenden Ausblick: “Building a lasting, productive and well established community will be the vital question for the whole project in my opinion. Offering a great idea, which this initiative is without question, will not be enough to motivate people to participate long term.”
