Artist T. Whid recently declared Google\'s \'Live Query\' function, \'a net art masterpiece.\' Years earlier jodi.org listed their 10 favorite sites as search engine queries for terms like \"cccccccccc.\" From Christophe Bruno\'s GogolChat to Yoshi Sodeoka Prototype #38, search engines continue to be a source of net art experimentation. And recognized net artists aren\'t the only ones getting into the act. Some favorite search engine recontextualizations: googlism (http://www.googlism.com/), googlefight (http://www.googlefight.com/), googlewhack (http://www.googlewhack.com/), metaspy (http://www.metaspy.com/) and zeitgeist (http://www.google.com/zeitgeist/). - Curt Cloninger
