That's one of the searches in this parody of what Dick Cheney's search history might look like, from Vanity Fair. I like seeing this kind of stuff in mainstream culture, it means the very concept of clickstreams and Database of Intentions is seeping into our consciousness…. (Thanks, David)…

…That’s new MSN chief Steve Berkowitz, late of Ask.com, in a revealing NYT profile by Saul Hansell. In it Steve acknowledges that Microsoft has lost its way in search and other online services, that the Live brand is confusing, that his job is made more difficult by Ray Ozzie’s famous memo, and much more. It’s worth the time.

Hey Searchbloggers:

Some of our most avid readers are having problems with the “human detector” on Searchblog, and can’t post comments. In fact, I can’t post myself! I’d like to get to the bottom of this, so can you guys help? Can you try to post a comment on this post, and if it works, great, we’ll see that. If it does not, can you send me an email (jbat @ battellemedia dot com) with your OS, browser type, and the comment body text? I’d be very grateful. The “human detector” is doing a great job stopping spam, but lately, it seems to be doing a poor job at detecting humans. Thanks!

Update: Thanks for all your help. I think I may have figured this out, or at least, we’re closer. Seems that if a commentor posts a comment with three or more URLs, his or her comment is automatically labeled “junk” – and that kicks in all sorts of other complications. Have to pry apart the various throttling technologies like Akismet from the human detector, but for now, I think that’s the main issue. If you post a comment, please keep URLs to one or two, until I figure out how to fix it…thanks.

Throughout that challenging period [after the crash], Ms. Decker played a leading role in helping reset expectations on Wall Street and inside the company. She was also instrumental in helping recruit a management team that put the company on a path to renewed growth.

Those accomplishments earned her a healthy dose of credibility and loyalty, according to people inside and outside Yahoo….
