Kozoru searching for better answers: Yet another search engine is coming. This one aims to put the Web in its place.

“And we’re putting the encyclopedia on top of [the dictionary]. And on top of that we’re putting news. And on top of that, you’ve got the Web, which is opinion… We’re putting the Internet in the context of where it belongs. There’s good information on the Internet. But there’s a lot of bad information, too.”

Flowers said PageRank and other search engine algorithms also suffer because they do not measure whether something is current. Thus, an old, popular site or page may stay at the top of search results, even if its information is no longer relevant.

“Kozoru will know the difference between an article that came out today and one that came out 20 years ago,” Flowers said.
