Non-Human SEO Consultant

“As a result, instead of optimizing our machines for humanity-or even the benefit of some particular group-we are optimizing humans for machinery.” Douglas Rushkoff. Program or Be Programmed. OR Books, 2010.

Nice find! that self-licking ice-cone is one step closer… Who needs those pesky humans… ?

I did… It’s as vacuous as any other SEO article. I admittedly have this fantasy of search engine algorithms in battle with non-human SEO engines. I wish there was a way to visualise it:)

something like a cross between Kubrick in 2001 a space odyssey (the ending scenes) and Mad Max with music by Sun Ra?
