Reading about the epic battle against Google that Microsoft, TimeWarner, and Yahoo continue to lose, I have to wonder if it’s really such a world-beating thing to own search. Right now it is, since the search box is the interface to much of the Internet for people. But isn’t that a sad, pinched state of affairs? There’s a lot more valuable information in Twitter and Facebook than in Google. Won’t something that lets me tap into that be much more valuable, and soon?
