Taking nothing for granted

At Done with Mirrors, Callimachus has a very interesting (and somewhat disturbing) post, "The Google Game."

In it, he outlines the reasons he has for suspecting that Google's programmers may not be completely fair in their listings, nor completely honest.

His experiences are eye opening to say the least. The lesson for me is to never assume that a seemingly neutral source, such as Google, actually operates on fair and reasonable grounds and produces reliable and consistent results.
