Name o’ the Day (Google Spokeswoman Edition)

From a Thursday New York Times piece about Google’s autocomplete feature, which anticipates what you’re searching for online.

In a statement, Krisztina Radosavljevic-Szilagyi, a Google spokeswoman, wrote: “The search queries that you see as part of autocomplete are a reflection of the search activity of all Web users.” She declined to give an interview about autocomplete, but added in her note that Google tries to accurately reflect the diversity of what is on the Internet, whether good or bad.

Google search results for Krisztina Radosavljevic-Szilagyi:

Most of those 159,000 searches, presumably, by reporters quoting her and wanting to get the spelling right.
