Imagine it's 2003, Bush is still in his first term, and I said that in 25
years it would be commonplace to search through a three billion
document set in less than a second, return results that most people were
satisfied with most of the time and a computer would understand them. Not
perfect mind you, but good enough that the company offering this service
would find their name being turned into a verb and being suggested as a new
word in the OED.
If I said this you'd think I was bonkers. But you'd be wrong.
