A day without GOOGLE

You may not know it but there are many search engines out there in cyberspace besides Google.

At the blog Alternative search engines, they post a top 100 list and monthly updates. The June top 100 can be found here in an excel worksheet and the history of the list can be found here.

AltSearchEngines is asking everyone to go one day (6 am - midnight), this Tuesday, without using one of the major search engines; Google, Yahoo!, MSN, AOL, or Ask.

And just to give you an idea/a taste of alternative search engines, here are a few examples:
Snooth - personalized wine recommendations (hey I'm in California, land of the wine snobs)
Sputtr - a collection of all your favorite search engines on one page.
Cognition health search - uses natural language and allows you to search various reliable sites for health information and journal articles.

Ooh, that's a toughie.
I just write my quest up on top, and it automatically goes to google.
