(image) Our friends in the press have decided that search has had its decade in the sun, and I can't disagree, at least as it was known before. The question of how it becomes something else is still very much afoot, but not solved. But glimmerings abound, including from Twitter.

I love Ben Thompson's Stratechery site, so much in fact that I'm writing a response to his recent “Peak Google” post, even though these days most of us limit our bloggy commentary to the 140-character windows of Twitter. I'm responding to Thompson's post for a couple of reasons.
