Relative search

Its been a while since I have posted on my blog. There has been a lot of work to do and i’m in the process of consolidating this blog with my tumblog. More to come but for now a quick post on Google Search Wiki.

I have been using it for the past few weeks on and i finally figured out why it annoys me way more than the average beta product — I have philosophically issues with this product, its inconsistent with what I want from a Google search.

I have become accustomed to Google representing a canonical point of view. Now all of a sudden Google has become a swamp of relativity. I have almost a physical response to seeing the arrows up and down on the results. Its fascinating that they would try this — after years of debate on the merits of personalized search — im surprised and watching closely, but now from afar — I wish http://www.customizegoogle.com/ would add a switch to turn this off.
