"Googlism uses Google to give you one-sentence answers on "who," "what," "where" or "when" a particular term is. Most of it is silly. For example, a "who" search for "Paul McCartney" results in a wacky list of descriptions ranging from "paul mccartney is a great musician" to "paul mccartney is a futile gesture." Whatever that means. But some of it is dead-on. [...] The questions that Googlism lets you pose, and the questions that news stories address, are a natural fit."
I was surprised to see that Googlism could be a lot less stupid than Ask Jeeves when you ask it questions.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
