Google's Bing Sting - - 37 views

  • Google says it caught Microsoft copying its search results and incorporating them into its own Bing service.
  • Short version: Google suspected that Microsoft was recording what Internet Explorer users typed into the Google search box and which search result they were clicking — and then using that information to adjust Bing’s results. To test this theory, Google engineers set up a sting operation.
  • Microsoft doesn’t deny its sleazy tactic; its bizarre defense is simply that the ripped-off Google results represent only one of many data points Bing considers.

Attention versus distraction? What that big NY Times story leaves out » Niema... - 51 views

    The web is a space whose very abundance of information - and whose very informational infrastructure - trains our attention to follow our interests. And vice versa. In that, it's empowering information as a function of interest.

Vishal needs needs no other justification for his choice; interest itself is its own acquittal. And we're seeing the same thing in news. While formal learning has been, in the pre-digital world, a matter of rote obligation in the service of intellectual catholicism - and news consumption has been a matter of the bundle rather than the atom - the web-powered world is creating a knowledge economy that spins on the axis of interest. Individual interest. The web inculcates a follow your bliss approach to learning that seeps, slowly, into the broader realm of information; under its influence, our notion of knowledge is slowly shedding its normative layers.
