Elizabeth Liddy discusses important points in which the internet search operates. It was truly facinating how the search engines utilizes various protocol to help me find the latest episodes of ‘Dexter’. However is the search engines really categorizing data correctly? When I google “Dexter”, will my favorite narcissistic and sociopathic killer really pop up; and not some “not safe for work” content?
I recall in High School, my headmaster was telling us a story about how his son googled something relatively specific, “beavers”, and rounded up receiving something entirely inappropriate for a child. Is data and information really caterorgized properly? Is it really being review and distributed correctly or can any haphazard sap cause me grief at work when I google “Lizards” or “landing strips”.
