I do not often link /. here, since a lot of you read it already, but this
Guardian story is definitely on-topic:,12597,1210455,00.html

It is a bit tongue-in-cheek (being the Guardian and all), but the premise of
the article is to compare Google to some meatspace (or quasi-meatspace, keitai
figuring in heavily and all) search methods. A good five-minute read.
