The Register has a good story, that I found through Security Blogabout GoogleWash of an Orwellian term "Second Superpower".
A new word that's sweeping the nation and the world, apparently. While the concert of the journalists is understandable, it is not very clear how this is different from what TV, radio, and print have been doing forever. I guess the speed of its spreading is impressive - 42 days. However, when I look at the size of the audience that is indeed familiar with the word and the concept relative to the size of total populace, even in the countries directly related to the language/culture. I am actually happy to have learnt a new word -- Googlewash. Has such a nice ring to it.
