An idea

How about creating a search engine that excludes paid-for advertisements and puts 'information' resources above sites selling stuff.

The biggest obstacle is finding the stuff we used to know and love (and hate) - so let's make it easier to find stuff, that way more people will make stuff.

So, if you are looking for a new fridge etc. you can go to Google/Bing etc., but if you want to wander the backstreets then you go to the new 'backstreet' search engine :)
