Dear Shavkat,

The subscription would not be for all the net but for parts of the internet that are of particular interest to a specific user, the comment was meant to indicate an analogy to what already exists now, online excerpt databases for professional journals.

For example in my case I would not mind paying such a subscription if I could get search results based on ALL searchable information and data on sustainable development.

Google, Yahoo! and the other search engines in a sense behave a lot like the pharmaceutical conglomerates and multinationals, they only build applications and services for the largest potential definable market segments which are of interest to advertisers. 

I agree with you on the fact that freedom of access and free access are essential, but some parts must pay for the whole, which is a business model used by Google and Yahoo!

The beauty of it all that in the end, standards, developing technologies and applications and the collectivity of the users are the only things that define the development of the internet.

In my opinion neither Google nor Yahoo! has the required diversity of needed human resources to upgrade to the internet giant of the semantic web internet era.

I think people wouldn't pay any fees to search the web. The FREEdom of
the Internet is why it is so powerful. Also, while I agree with most
other Milton's statements, this new Internet giant might still be
Google, since they are already going to this direction in many ways.
Thanks for the insightful post!

Kindest regards,
Shavkat
