How to find *anything* on the Web
Advanced internet searching strategies & "wizard seeking" tips
Participants will be trained to become good "seekers". Techniques and tricks used for efficiently searching through the world wide web will be taught and search engines will be reviewed; in short: the hacker's approach to searching.
My workshop will hopefully embark those that so wish on a very long voyage. At the end they'll be what I would like to call, lacking a better definition, good seekers. As a consequence they will probably be able to find anything they may ever be looking for on the web.
Be warned! Such knowledge will inter alia make you quite a dangerous person. This possibility is the very reason for my work, come to think of it. Indeed I'll try to teach and explain you some of the main techniques and tricks used by able (and "master") seekers all over the web, but at the same time I'll do my best to (try to) keep you safely on that what I believe should be a "knowledge path". My hope is that once in possession of this knowledge, you will remain on our side, helping us spreading knowledge for free in our quickly disappearing web of sharing, which has unfortunately been almost stomped to death by the commercial barbarians that roam the webscape everywhere, zombies who use their sharp (and dangerous) horns of pushed advertisement and money in order to loot, rape and ultimately destroy knowledge.
Along these lines: http://www.searchlores.org/london2004.htm, only updated, of course, and with some new "css-destroying" tricks and some recent "database entering" strategies and useful main search engines (e.g. Ando, A9 and Baidu).
