Well, I don't think the Internet has ever been just about the web,
though the web (and even more so, email) certainly drove mainstream
adoption. But these things aren't totally separate: people email web
pages to each other, IM links, etc… I don't think any of these things
would be as popular in isolation.

I agree with that. But don't you think the internetwork needs search?
