Re: <nettime> search engines on the move


i am just back from the conference at jan van eyck academy in
maastricht, the "forum on quaero" which - if i remember correctly -
initiated this thread on search engines.
[see also: http://www.kein.org/node/164 ]

it was a really intense and productive weekend highlighting the question
of the politics of the search engine from various different perspectives
such as privacy related issues, but also on conceptual,  theoretical,
political levels, in terms of design and architecture as well as
possible alternatives to the corporate technologies.

on sunday afternoon erik borra and joris van hoboken presented the
opensearch project http://www.open-search.net which proposes to build a
distributed, peer-to-peer, search-engine which i would like to add to
predrags list..

i am sure that the organizers of the event, the amsterdam based  design
research group metahaven http://metahaven.net are going  to make the
recordings and the outcome of the debates available  as soon as
possible and i am looking forward very much to any  chance to
follow-up this debate.

more soon!
