Not like “indigestion” but part of the “pre-digestion”. I mentioned in the Rajma post that SEO (Search Engine Optimization) was making recipe sites trash. Today at the top of the orange site is an app that removes the clutter. No endorsement / recommendation implied – i’ve not even opened the link.
Take a brief review of the top comments to get a flavour (see what i did there…) of how the big ole goofy search monopoly google is making the web a better place.
Repeating myself at this point, but google is likely the biggest misallocation of engineering resources the world has ever seen. The greatest computer science minds of several generations, all grist for a trillion dollar advertising mill. Possibilities ground to dust under the wheels of silicon valley “progress”.
[With all due respect / apologies to my friends that work there… but come on, you know it’s mostly true!]
