Re: <nettime> The coming Internet Ice Age

Sounds easy enough to fix, just add a feature to google which filters out 
results based on their last update - e.g. you search for "gogobot blog 
transhuman politics" and then type in a date "12.4.01", either in a seperate 
box, or preferable with a command in front of it, like the site-only search 
command "site:http://gogobot.blogspot.com";, "date:12.4.01". You end up with 
only post-"ice age" results. Assuming such an ice age exists, I'm not 
convinced. I don't dispute that a lot of older sites are no longer updating, 
but perhaps what we are really seeing is primarily the "free-market of 
ideas" in effect, it seems just as plausible.
