Betsy Schifmann of the Epicenter blog on Wired.com raises a question on how long Google will dominate search.
She says that there must be room for improvement and that is explained by a massive number of search start-ups. She also mentions Chris Sherman of Search Engine Land who notices that “if you’re looking for a specific piece of in formation, sometimes it[Google]‘s not quite as good… The opportunity lies in disruptive technologies that Google probably won’t develop because it’s perceived as too risky.”
On the other hand, Bernard Lunn of ReadWriteWeb profiled 11 trends that may disrupt Google. I think that he misses one more.
