Well, here's an interesting idea.... There's a pledge of over PledgeBank regarding the use (or not!) of Google and it's services throughout October. The pledge is actually: "I will not use Google during October and will join a mailing list to discuss/build alternatives but only if 50 other addicts will too." The pledge creator, Francis Irving says that although he loves Google, he's a little too dependent on them, so he's trying to find alternatives, and encourage people to join a mailing list to discuss them. I think it's a great idea though as he has included Gmail I couldn't sign up to it since I have a lot of work email through my account. However, anything that encourages people to look more widely afield is a good thing in my book - my immediate response would be 'Try Exalead' I shall watch developments with interest.
