I mentioned my Countdown calendar a couple of days ago.
“For several years, Google users could type “miserable failure” into the search engine and be taken directly to the official White House biography of George W. Bush. However, on January 31, 2007, Yahoo! News announced that Google had fixed this “link bomb” glitch.”
That’s all well and good, but now when you type in the same words, you get links and links about the correction of the error, which still implies that the words “miserable failure” and George W. Bush are inextricably linked. The results are different but the implication is the same.
We are amused.
355 days and counting…
