This is a open invitation for you to help to draw a “market map”, a “knowledge map” for orientation and awareness. Like the open source – open street map project. The map and market grid will be about the, for the time being, oligopolistic search engine market for internet and intranets.
Goal is to get more public attention and awareness of the implicit dangers of this kind of market patterns. We must ensure, within our information society “Netzneutralität”, open data and open access. Search Engines are key. To understand and to make it clear to others, we need a market map to show, who and where rules this market.
Draft – your contributions are most welcome :
The grid we start off are the demand, supply sides and reports about market patterns. As first R&D infrastructure we are using open source Zotero application. Further information about Zotero in German
The steps we want to take are :
