Hey Google, Give Me a Search Engine
(Search Engine Lowdown)

“Dear Google (or MSN, Ask Jeeves, Yahoo etc...),

I'd like a search engine of my very own. With its own crawler and everything.

Let me populate my own index with the sites/images/blogs/videos I choose. I'll use my extra gmail space to hold the data ;)

Let me tweak the algorithm myself (just give me the knobs to turn I don't want to know how it actually works).”
