Interesting news. Intention / idea might be good but I am a bit skeptical about practical outcome. They still need a plan and then need to execute on it, and with so many separate entities it might not be easy. In related field, and just recently, Germany and France tried to jointly develop SE (hyped as SE that would challenge google) and that collaboration didn't last long...I wish them luck but am not holding by breath at the moment.
