Yeah, internet search doesn't have network effects, that's "directory enquiries", it's irrelevent which DQ service you use, they're all serving the same data. Google is the opposite of Facebook, Facebook *is* network effects. If you want to communicate with your community who commune on Facebook you don't go looking for them on MySpace. Facebook is "the telephone" not "Midland Telephone Company" (ask your great-grandad).
