Exalead CEO Warns Of "Google Monster" & Closed Yahoo & Microsoft (Search Engine Watch)

“The Multilingual Search Blog covers Exalead CEO Francois Bourdoncle taking a big stick and swinging at Google in a keynote talk at SES Paris.

He positions his own service as potentially the savior for those in Europe worried about the "Google monster."

Beyond Google, he also criticizes Yahoo and Microsoft for collaborating on a "closed" sitemaps protocol.

I'd say the Cold War against American-based search engines is going up a notch.”
