  26. 32. Is that the death of search? <ul><li>NO! </li></ul><ul><li>Search will evolve, and continue to evolve </li></ul><ul><li>It will in fact become MORE pervasive, not less </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Search is everything and will be everywhere.&quot; (John Battelle, co-founder Wired magazine) </li></ul>
