If the gatekeeping of commercial search engines is not balanced with open and accountable public approaches, the ability to find non-commercial information or that which is critical of governments and other powerful institutions could disappear. Open source, public search engines using open classification systems could solve this problem. It could open a new wave of experimentation in accessing information and serve as a reminder that access to information is a sacred human right.
