I’ve been lax about posting when I get stuff published. Not that I’ve had a lot lately, but anyway…
Life beyond Google: Do alternative search engines measure up?, published at Computerworld.com.
I never know what’s going to happen when I submit to CW. Some of the editors give my stuff the Computerworld treatment which tends to bleach out any of my personality I’ve put into it, others leave my weirdness intact. I understand the bleaching process… they’re trying to project a consistent voice. But it’s strange to read one of these pieces and think “Wait…I wrote this? This doesn’t sound like me!”
Anyway, this one is more or less intact… probably not a thrilling read for most of my friends, though.
