Despite what some people in Cambridge might tell you, there is absolutely nothing special about the internet search engine, ’trueknowledge.com’.
In reality, it is just another internet search engine that is monitored by a group of IT geeks who have made the fatal mistake (like Wikipedia) of allowing the ‘common idiot’ to contribute information that at times is nothing more than lies, damn lies and Saloon Bar ignorance.
It would be nice to think that there is some exciting new and incredible Artificial Intelligence at work whenever one goes online and asks trueknowledge.com a question. But just like its sister ships, ’Bing’, ‘Google’ and ‘Yahoo’, it is just another moneymaking ‘search website’ business that will soon be overloaded with adverts for things you wouldn’t buy in a month of Sundays..
These Cambridge-based trueknowledge.com geeks have the cheek to call it ‘The Internet Search Engine’ as though it’s the only one. And they drove another nail into its coffin by advertising it on non other than that pioneer international news junction ‘BBC Look East’ where they asked it that well-known earth searching, age-old question ‘When did ‘Look East begin’?
Trueknowledge.com used all its ‘Intelligence’ to inform the ‘Look East’ reporter in his report last evening that it was ’1959′. Which, in fact, is totally incorrect!
Everyone knows it always begins at 1830. And following Stuart White’s introduction to a gripping five-minute feature (usually about some farm tractor that’s been stolen from up some muddy godforsaken farm track somewhere or other) I am usually asleep by 1840.
