Matsushita Electric Industrial, Hitachi, NEC and Fujitsu as well as telecom carrier Nippon Telegraph and Telephone and public broadcaster NHK & Japan's government, and universities are teaming up to develop their own Internet search technology. The Japanese society now recognizes that Information searches have become a source of wealth. Japan's concerted effort was aimed at competing with Google . I earlier wrote about a new metasearch engine launched in Asia. Somehow this non-US internet related products do not do well -(I have no complaints – The US rightfully deserves its position as the leader in the online space). While I am not sure how the objective of making japanese companies more competitive with initiatives like this - it is a welcome move - long overdue..If any this can only help things improve globally and force more innovation.
