Re: An idea (A problem)

I would think, "But who pays the bills?" Is a very concise counterargument, not to mention very grounded in reality. As for why Google could take over, it's all first mover advantage. It's a lot easier to take over a market with no dominant incumbent than one that does.

And I'm leery of crowd-sourced searches. They already exist, after all (see yacy).
