    I heard the open source guy Doug Cutting who programmed the lucene search library, used to work at Yahoo and left.

    I think with the current Yahoo CEO, she has the least interest in search engines. She is probably more focusing on making Yahoo a portal site.

    Too bad Google taking more marketing share given Yahoo’s less focus on search. I think in the future, rather than Yahoo or Bing to compete with Google, niche search engines will be better at taking market share away from Google. That’s the direction I am going into, building niche search engines like http://www.simpledealsearch.com to compete with Google in a smaller scale.
