the algo must be a slow learner
Yes extremely slow. According to Eric Schmidt they anticipate it will take 300 years as indicated in the book The Shallows that I'm currently reading. You can read the google chapter titled "The Church of Google" from page 149 to 176 thru google books at [books.google.ca...] -- there's a lot of google insight revealed there that I have not read elsewhere. The actual 300 year quote is on page 152.
