Open Source Search - Where Is The Future Headed?

So what if, hypothetically speaking, Google decided to release its code, make it open source, and let millions of seos, marketers, hackers, webmasters, soccer moms, ex-presidents, and NBA super stars do with it as they please? Would the world be a better place, would it be possible to even consider? I don't know, but the things all these people could create would be interesting. I am guessing though open source will have to start small and work its way up to the bigger players. For Google, open source is a bad idea, for other niches and directories its a great idea.

Found a neat little post over at SEOchat, about open source search engines and the possibility they would hit mainstream.
