Google Don't Blink

Dave Winer on scripting news quotes from my “On the Trail of the Memex” in order to disagree:

    Here’s one for the history books. “For all intents and purposes, Google owns the Web, by virtue of its superior and highly popular search engine.” I don’t agree. Teoma appears to be as good a search engine as Google…

Maybe Temoa is just as good, but at the moment anyway, Teoma isn’t nearly as popular. Winer does make an excellent point that I didn’t address: “BTW, anyone who believes that Google actually owns the Web should remember that Microsoft owns the browser. Google is a good search engine and blogging tool. We don’t know how they will connect them yet. I bet they don’t either.” —Google Don’t BlinkScripting News)
