Good find.
The stuff about personalization and Kaltix reminded me of Google's search counter. Probably no tie.

...or "The primary mission of Google is to stop those darn SEO's dead in their tracks".

I think what he was saying is that the algo cannot be a "one size fits all" and the next step will be personalization.

More of a social barrier than anything; would you trust google with your personal info?

The SE that develops that level of trust will win.

I don't think that will be much of a problem for MSN, Yahoo! or Google. I think they will all get that level of trust and will have to compete on what they do with your information.

There are enough people watching privacy issues for none of the big players to dare try and abuse that power. If they do it will be big big news.

Then why are they (MS and many others) always trying to abuse it?

Most big companies would sell your grandmother if it reaped a profit :)

As a bread aficionado, I think the invention of presliced bread was a big mistake. And it's good to know that, if Google were in the baking business, it would be working hard to protect the quality and purity of its bread--and that it would try to punish those who messed with its recipe. :-)

One of the wisest and truest statements I have ever read.
