Hey Google: Make Room for Kumo!

Does anybody remember Netscape? The browser that no one ver thought could be beat WAS beat by Internet Explorer! Yes, now there's Firefox, and Google Chrome, but do you think that today Microsoft could pull the rug out from under Google? I for one, think not, as long as the folks behind the engine keep running Google as a lean, mean searchin' machine... not to mention all of the other wonderful services they provide. Makes me glad I decided back in 05 to stay with blog*spot (and Google)!
Microsoft on Tuesday confirmed it is testing a new Internet search engine it hopes will power the US software giant out of distant third place in a market dominated by Google.

A Kumo.com search engine being privately tested by Microsoft workers is reportedly based on semantic technology that enables it to understand sentences and relationships between words...
(more from Brietbart)
Let's face it: there are many wonderful services out there, many that I use, including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, MyBlogLog (and other yahoo! services), Technorati and Haloscan. I'm happy with each and every one. Is there room for another search engine? Can Kumo make it? Anyone?

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
