Orlowski has an interesting take on Google and weblogs. He has said that weblogs "might ruin [the] creative process" for writers.  That author William Gibson "having 'forsaken' his blog" will be able to "preserve his mind."  That weblogs "discredit" Google's search service  and that the "world of bloggers" is a "diminishing" group of "'WA's (Weblog-Lobbyists)" with a widespread "supplicant mentality."  Also - that Google's PageRank mechanism engages in "semantic ethnic-cleansing." 
To repeat, though differently: Google searches can be compared to ethnic cleansing. As writing: that's impressive.
Update: Tom Coates has written more on the Andrew Orlowski experience.
