Help! Help! My Internet connection is failing!
Upshot, no posts.
I don't have time to code this right now, but here's an idea for a Google API app. It's just the sort of thing webloggers would go for, a vanity macro.
- Scrape your referers pages, extracting all google queries and extracting the "q" parameter.
- Run these through the Google API, looking for search terms that you're in the top 10 for.
- Store all of these.
- Every so often (6 hours, or maybe every post), pick one of these results, and create a Google box to upload to your page. (Remove the result if you're no longer in the top ten.)
Why is this interesting? Well, while I'm proud to still be in the top ten for CBDTPA,
many of the google queries I'm getting are quite interesting, albiet not in a Disturbing Search Requests way. Who would have guessed I have the top search result for "essay on tragic event to remind us of our blessings"?
This would be a really cool vanity thing. I may code it if nobody else does, but it'll be a while.
In which I receive a non-response and an incorrect response to a query about the CBDTPA [Erehwon Notebook]
Regarding my earlier post about the grass-roots denouncement of the CBDPTA being essentially non-news, this provides some good, albiet anecdotal, evidence that supports my feeling that way.
'The European Parliament has voted overwhelmingly to oppose the use of "blocking" as a way of regulating content on the Internet.
'The vote (460 in favour, 0 against and 3 abstentions) this morning means that ISPs will not be forced to restrict access to Web sites....
'[Ms Gosling] added that blocking is "technically difficult, democratically questionable and undoubtedly inefficient" and believes that there are far better ways to deal with content issues, such as using special hotlines and ratings systems.'
This is an anti-blog-post. This story is totally unimportent. Thanks for anti-reading.
