They Say I’m Long Winded
Maybe it’s genetic. I have no idea. Should I be more self aware of this? Probably. Fact is, Google has officially called me out on it. It’s slightly creepy when a non-human entity points out a human characteristic. Okay, so it’s not a human characteristic that’s considered attractive but still, it’s unsettling. I laughed out loud but it was one of those laughs that was part ha-ha, part I-don’t-know-what-else-to-do-because-I’m-uncomfortable kind of laughs.
Here’s Google’s response to one of my blog post titles:
Warning: Title display in Google is limited to a fixed width, yours is too long.
I’m giving the shitty sentence structure a pass. Namely, because I’m completely fascinated by how this non-human “voice” manages to sound so beautifully, snarkily human.
I’m wondering which Google team member insisted on taking off “dumb shit” at the end of that warning?
Just to be clear, I know “snarkily” is not a word. I’m sure Google will somehow find a way to point that out.
P.S Rudimentary, art-house doodle is a self-portrait. And yeah, that’s sorta the color of my hair right now.
