Google-fu (of a sort)

This (via [personal profile] haikujaguar) is pretty awesome:

“That any two things in the universe are connected can be demonstrated inductively by the magic of Google. It is not necessary that to be computationally tractable a process must be informationally encapsulated. Take any two words. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy uses “banana” and “mandolin” in an article on the Frame Problem. If you google it, you obtain 2,690,000 hits.”

(“Avatar mouse” is interesting.)

1000 years ago or so, there was a thing … I think “googlism”… where the trick was to find a phrase that had no google results…
