<nettime> hacking google, hacking politics (Update)


The George W. Bush store strikes back!

On Tuesday, delighted Dubya detractors discovered that the words "dumb
motherfucker" plugged into Yahoo or Google would lead directly to the
George W. Bush Store; news circulated the Net twelve times over by this
morning. Today, however, visitors to The George W. Bush Store were met by
this greeting: "Note: If you have arrived at this site through
inappropriate references via a search engine, please be assured that we
did not utilize this language in our site, our HTML, nor in our Internet
promotion of this site. What happened was the result of a malicious act
and we are pursuing remedies through the efforts of our staff and
attorneys."
