A story from the point of view of technology
« on: May 23, 2008, 07:43:48 PM »
I had no idea where else to put this; so I thought I'd talk about it here.

AOL accidently released searchs for its customers, so we could see what was searches on a reference number were done in order.  It was for adverts apparently... but hey, its not why I made this
so Something aweful looked through lots of it... and found funny stuff.  what you would expect, sex and so on

but then there is this one
And it brought a tear to me eye

Within that short number of searches is a while story of self destruction.  It's a story of reaching out for help.  It's a story of a family in trouble.  Especially the last part.

It brought a tear to my eye.  Maybe it is because I know it is real. but I doubt it; I think its because it unfolds before us.  And to a degree we see part way into the future. 
But its a story from the point of view of a search engine.  not a computer, or a blog, or anything peopel are trying to tell anyone anything.

People can be very open with a search engine; because people think its private and are seeking answers to specific questions.  They ask exactly what they want answered.  They are more open they many people would be with a blog or any friend.

I just thought I'd share, because I was surprised at how it moved me....

Have there been any stories from this sort of point of view?
