All the Web No More

There was a brief period–gosh, maybe ten years ago?–when All the Web was my favorite search engine. In fact, I steadfastly believed it was better than Google. Then it had a sad decline. And now it’s apparently going away.

TV shows occasionally call it quits when they’re still on top–Mary Tyler Moore, Seinfeld, The Sopranos. Why is it that every good Web site goes through a sad decline?

    A rhetorical question, of course, but the answer is “scarcity.” Keeping a site online doesn’t require a limited timeslot.

    As a reader, I wish to reassure you that the sad decline phase appears to be very far in Technologizer's future. Barring, of course, a surprise takeover by the Huffington Post.

    This is the first I've ever heard of it, and I was a pretty heavy web user even a decade ago.
