Academic's Call For A

Amazing! This post blasting Google for allowing its search results to be dominated by ads and content optimized for search engines is really popular.

Vivek Wadhwa, a professor at UC-Berkeley, on New year's Day posted a guest entry on TechCrunch entitled, Why We Desperately Need a New (and Better) Google.

 

The post has gotten a large number of comments and is generating som buzz. Interesting how quickly the digerati turns on their favorites when they become too popular.  

 

Update: About 30 minites after I originally posted this item, I found coverage of it on Silicon Alley Insider, which wonders: "Maybe Google's Achilles heel isn't some new outlier, but the oldest one in the book: a better mousetrap."
