Media giant about to back European ‘Google killer’

Bertelsmann’s announcement that the German media company is close to signing up as a partner behind the European search engine project Quaero has kindled discussion on Quaero’s role in the emerging ‘search engine wars’

It would seem to me to that they really will need to offer something qualitatively different from Google’s sophisticated (if still flawed) search algorithms: Empolis made early inroads to investigating and using the ISO Topic Maps standard as a higher-order “semantic” navigation layer, but seems to have gone quiet on this front recently.
