mp_en_viaje: why would "an open source project" be doing the deed ? hm ?
diana_coman: "You unpretentiously rumble to douse and purpose Tor." - this is close to that Lushdrizzle eulora came up with, lol.
mp_en_viaje: and continuing on that lulz : you know what's missing from this list of obscura ? ANY republican logger whatsoever. websites that were last loaded in 2016, yes. the ~only thing actually happening in the whole friggin' world ? awww.
mp_en_viaje: not that it's directed, either. consider, randomly picking, a search for news from costa rica :
mp_en_viaje: 'A citizen of the world': NASA's first Latino astronaut reflects on how space changed his immigrant identity - Washington Post|3 hours ago - About US is a new initiative by The Washington Post to cover issues of identity in the United States. While the American memory of the Space Race is most often filtered through black-and-white ...
mp_en_viaje: "I Got a Beer Spa Treatment, and It Was Transcendent Food & Wine|4 days ago When I first received the invite to check out the new beer-infused body treatment at Costa Rica's Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa,"
mp_en_viaje: spoiler, tabacon is the shittiest venue in the whole fucking country, i spent a total of ten minutes there watching them be us-level moronic. out of the ~four digit~ hours i spent in costa rican venues to date, that item is easily in the botom 10% of the list.
mp_en_viaje: "Mexican women cricketers pushing boundaries... and scoring them" on fucking Al Jazeera ?! why do they lie, it's buzzfeed, it's not al-anything.
mp_en_viaje: and so on in this vein, calling it 0 relevancy would be misleading in suggesting there's some kind of relation even fucking possible. there isn't, the whole thing's self-spun.
mp_en_viaje: the websearch is dead, pure and simple. is there something we can do about it ?

diana_coman: well, to what extent is there webcontent outside of logs really (which have search, no?)
diana_coman: logs, blogs and archive, sure;
diana_coman: wtf is "transcendent food" ?
BingoBoingo: Adjective abuse. Awesome and Great don't mean anything anymore so they gotta stretch.
diana_coman: ah, the word-rot running out of words, myeah
asciilifeform: << it's detectably deader now than was even month ago. in the midst of heathen scutwork, had to extensively dig for eggogs, with google et al, and good 20-30% of the 'hits' are nao openly shannonized linkfarms with domains in the style of etc and packed fulla spamola. i.e. full-bore reversion to state of art circa 1997 or so
a111: Logged on 2019-07-12 14:18 mp_en_viaje: the websearch is dead, pure and simple. is there something we can do about it ?
asciilifeform: i dun recall in what specific piece mp_en_viaje made this argument, but i buy it -- 'high quality www search was always illusion'. i.e. even if google et al did not actively fuck the outputs, even so 'pray tell mr babbage, if i feed into the machine a net fulla shit, will quality sites emerge from the search engine'
asciilifeform: '1998 google worked' but strictly because a) noise was moderate and relatively easy to filter b) signal was actually there. 'master magician can pull rabit out of hat, but only if the rabbit is in fact inside the hat' .
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, i recall this discussion back in the 2014 days, you were like "oh, still works for obscure error messages". stopped "working" even for that, huh.
mp_en_viaje: anyway, 1998 google worked because early version of "ai plays go", their pr thing where you iterate the links over a net, thing converges to values.
mp_en_viaje: obviously, works for only as long as nobody knows you're doing it.
asciilifeform: work-ed.
