Mark Cuban warns us against building the American Idol of Search

Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks and the IceRocket blog search engine asks “The better question is – “will objective search remain the people’s choice in search engines?” In other words, is there such a thing as a best answer for most questions and is that what a significant number of search users want?”

There is bias in every system, whether algorithmic or human-based. The algorithmic is just a bit more predictable.

Speaking of human based, have any of you been watching digg spy? That shows you — in live time — what Digg’s members are adding to it. That’s cool. Not sure how useful it is, but I just found this digg about a site that is advocating using the Firefox/IE RSS icon.
