I know! That’s a newspeak term for a “marketing director”!

Marissa Mayer is just one of those – what’s the beef?

She is described as

vice president for search products and user experience

But that just translates as “Marketing Director”. Sorry!

Nothing to see here then.

As marketing directors go, she is very pretty overall, but a bit blonde for my taste, so I’ll pass. I can say these things and not be sacked, for I am a Masterless Man.

However, that does not detract from the clear success and acumen of the Google people, including her obviously, in doing a very good imitation of taking all the geeks’ precious things, which I love to do, and giving them to everyone, which I also love to do.

And if Google simultaneously translates everything in every language, for everyone, into his own, then one of the main anti-cultural beefs about the Anglosphere, which is that it is “hegemonic”, can be laid to rest in the slime to which it belongs.

And who invented Google?

Here come the bastards, again, for your money, ‘coz they have run out of the last lot they shysted.

The Landed Underclass has spotted a move to “tax search engines”. I have to wonder how that’s going to work. It’s clearly a case, if true, of  “if it moves, tax it.” He says it came from this lot here, and the Mail here…apparently to “help the BBC”.

But…I thought the BBC had “The License fee” – no?

Here are some comments from the Mail link:-

“The government wants to give money to the BBC as it’s the one organisation that supports them and there will be an election to fight .”

#”What’s British TV got to do with Google”

“we pay enough for our broadband now, next thing will be gormless gordon putting a tax on the air we breath, but I guess MP’s will put that down on their expenses, like they do with their broadband…….”

No wonder the State wants “universal broadband”.
