Good Gopher search engine


Recommended Posts


Thanks for the links.

I'm going to bop around on Good Gopher for a few days before submitting OL (if I do).

This could be something really different and good, or it could be a way to advertise oneself to the crazies out there.

btw - Good Gopher bashes Google for corporate filtering, but it has some serious advertising going down when you search.

I tried "Ayn Rand" and got front page results from Counterpunch and Jewwatch. The ads are for a trick that restores 20/20 vision, best hemorrhoid treatment, and an online health care system among other things.

When I see the word "truth" presented as a banner of honor and I see things like my results above, I start experiencing cognitive dissonance.


Still, this search engine might be useful over time within its limitations.

The issue with filtering something like government disinfo is that one man's truth is another man's disinfo. I doubt there is a commonly held definition of disinfo between the developers and the users, hence Michael's findings.
