    Who knew that almost 2 decades of trying to understand Google's search algo was wasted when we just needed to tell Bill Clinton back in '99 that the results weren't fair and he should tell Google to tell us how they do it.

    But she says they want to find out what the rules are... and if that happened in NZ the info the Govt receives would be available to the public. Once it's out there we could then manipulate our sites to beat the algo.

    I doubt it will be disclosed. What needs to be done is someone needs to make sure the algorithm is revised / updated by politically, sociologically, theologically and other ...cally neutral engineers. I know it seems like pie in the sky... but one never knows.

    Isn't there some rule about interfering with private companies?

    Yes, private companies like Darth Google and others should be allowed to produce search results as they wish, biased or not. And their algorithms are part of their IP and should be kept private. And, by the way, there is no such thing as an unbiased person, group, or company. Everyone has biases that would impact any regulation or oversight.

    What is needed is more competition in the search and social media venues, much like has happened, to a small extent, with the television airwaves in the U.S. The airwaves are still significantly biased due to the legacy advantage that the lamestream media had for decades, but conservative outlets like Fox and others have gained a lot of ground and continue to do so. That is what is fueling, in part, the mass hysteria of the Left: their nonsense politics now get called out regularly and have to face scrutiny that belies their idiotic narratives.

    Hopefully, it is only a matter of time before some smart investors see the opportunity to serve the majority of the U.S. electorate by developing effective alternatives to Darth Google, Fakebook, and the other clueless leftie technology companies. Turns out that these leftists are part of The Swamp that Trump is calling out and fighting, but this part of the fight is best left to capitalism and the markets to deal with.

    As Reagan famously said, "The scariest words anyone can hear are: 'I'm from the Government and I am here to help.'"
