Serious question, why do we give so much power to these tech firms such as Google, when really the solution is decentralization. We have some solutions for money with bitcoin, but there still doesn’t seem to be a viable alternative with a search engine that is decentralized?

    Yeah I agree, its easier said than done. Web crawling requires a lot of resources

      Actually, maybe also because it requires even more resources as to build and maintain a proper decentralised software is technically harder than to do the same for a centralised search. And also because investing such resources means more donating them to the whole community rather than making profit, so those resources must not be the someone’s last penny.
