No, this is not a post about Bing (which I have not and probably will never use). Instead it’s just a link to a Wired article “Cool Search Engines That Are Not Google.”

From the artice:

“None of the sites we sampled are likely to replace Google as your go-to search engine for general queries, or dent Google’s growing sway as the world’s information broker any time soon. But even a cursory tour will make you start to think differently about what’s possible in search, and show up some of Google’s shortcomings.”

Again, it’s not that I’m interested in Google’s shortcomings; I’m more interested in starting to think differently about what’s possible.
