the search for the new—endless

Lieu—an alternative search engine. Created in response to the environs of apathy concerning the use of hypertext search and discovery. In Lieu, the internet is not what is made searchable, but instead one's own neighbourhood. Put differently, Lieu is a neighbourhood search engine, a way for personal webrings to increase serendipitous connexions.

This instance indexes the Merveilles Webring—138 domains, 12k pages, 368k search terms. Some domains of the webring have been filtered out for a better search experience, see the filtered list. Visit a random page.

Lieu was created by cblgh at the onset of 2021.
