An unfortunate coincidence

An unfortunate coincidence

Long ago, I did a post called “Machine Readable“. It was about algorithms for search and ads and finding related content that fell into the gap of context and nuance. At the time, I picked on Google because … honestly, it was fun and relevant at the time.

Well, after all that time – it’s still kinda relevant, and not just an issue with Google. A friend of mine recommended a particular book, and I looked at the Amazon record for it. The screenshot was taken at 9:26 p.m. PST, January 2, 2016. The only alteration is the red oval pointing out the irony. At least, I dearly hope it is irony.*

At least it wasn't Strom Thurmond's autobiography?
