Altavista has thrown in the towel on figuring their own Algos. They have made a multimillion dollar deal with OnePage INC to license their Information Extraction and aggregation software.

This will result in a major algo shift at alta.

Reading here [zdnet.com] it looks as if the OnePage product is for the aggregation of content from existing partners [approx 100] and unconnected with search.
