Great spam comment


I get a fair number of spam comments on this blog and I’ve noticed that the vast majority are all quite realistic. They could easily be written by actual people, the grammar, syntax & context are all spot on…it’s only the dodgy email/site addresses that let them down.

However I’ve just seen one in the spam filter on my blog that is so awesome I feel it needs to be shared. To me this reads like a great poem of old…almost in the style of Homer or Dante:

April Fools Day 2011


I do like a good April Fools prank and so am going to keep a little list of my favourites today. Here we go:

Control Google Mail with your Body!!!

How it works

Gmail Motion uses your computer’s built-in webcam and Google’s patented spatial tracking technology to detect your movements and translate them into meaningful characters and commands. Movements are designed to be simple and intuitive for people of all skill levels.

Google have helpfully made a list of common actions and phrases to help you get started with this GROUND BREAKING new method of communication:

Already they’ve got the next implementation of this lined up – Motion in Google Docs:

Google AutoComplete:

Google’s innovation keeps on coming…now they’re making AutoComplete even better…

The role: Autocompleter

Are you passionate about helping people? Are you intuitive? Do you often feel like you know what your friends and family are thinking and can finish their thoughts before they can? Are you an incredibly fast Google searcher? Like, so fast that you can do 20 searches before your mom does 1?

If, like me, you’re thinking this job sounds pretty brilliant, your enthusiasm may be tempered by the required skills. I think only a few great people will be up to scratch for this:

Responsibilities:
  • Watch anonymized search queries as they come in to Google.
  • Predict and type completions based on your personal experience and intuition.
  • Suggest spelling corrections when relevant.
  • Keep updated with query trends and offer fresh suggestions.
Requirements:
  • Excellent knowledge of English and at least one other language.
  • Excellent knowledge of grammatical rules (e.g. parts of speech, parsing).
  • Understanding of the search engine space.
  • Proven web search experience.
  • Good typing skills (at least 32,000 WPM).
  • Willingness to travel (in order to provide local autocompletions) or relocate to obscure places like Nauru and Tuvalu to develop knowledge of local news and trends.
  • Certificate in psychic reading strongly preferred: palm, tarot, hypnosis, astrology, numerology, runes and/or auras.
