What's a Googlewhack ?

I just tripped across this one again (I don't remember exactly what the trigger neuron was!) - this story always brings a smile to my face.

First, a
googlewhack is what happens when two words are entered into Google (with no quotes) and it comes back with one and only one hit. Simple right, no !

I think I've told some of you about this before, but we went to see
Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure last summer. What a fabulously funny, TRUE story.

If you ever get a chance to see this show, get your hands on the
DVD or read the book - go for it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

If you're in the mood to burn away a few minutes (hours), give it a try. You can get a one hit result pretty quickly, however the real trick is finding a real web site, not just an obscure link (like what you get when you enter something daft like "wonderously bizarros"). Note that many/all of the googlewhacks at
googlewhack are probably no longer googlewhacks !

The Dave Gorman link brought back memories. Been a big fan for a while. His website skipped and linked me to my mates blog and it has a nice link to a map that you'd like PJ.

It's London's Underground Map by Music Genre.

Thanks for the link to the map dink...some interesting intersections on the Blues & Country line (Zeppelin) !

Wow, that's a pretty grim story on World Weary Detective (via Rage on Omnipotent).

Back to the Olympics
