If we are talking from the seo point of view it depends on what kind of site you are talking about. I don't see any real difference in how information sites are doing at least in topics that aren't very commercial. So the damage has been done mostly to small commercial sites.
From the point of view of the searcher I see no difference when I am simply looking for information but looking for something I want to buy or find out more before I buy has been an exercise in frustration over the last few days. This could hurt Google's reputation. But then where else would people turn?
I'd say AV was a far bigger disaster. Florida will turn out to just be another "the sky is falling" episode like others we've been through. This is not to minimize how devastating it is for many small businesses
PS - Florida is a boy's name? What a terrible thing to do to a kid!
