Democratization of Search

Democratization of Search

It has begun. With Amazon’s announcement of the Alexa web search platform beta the index of the web is no longer the domain solely of 800 lb gorillas. Anybody who knows how to consume a webservice can tap into Alexa’s index of billions of documents. This move will truly democratize search as ideas will no longer be constrained by the need to have a massive data center and web crawlers.
