The Alphabet According to Google

This is the alphabet according to Google autocomplete which is based on the which the frequency of search queries. So the idea is that if I type in “a” it suggests “Amazon” because Amazon is the most search for word on Google starting with the letter A. Like so,

I edited the results a little to leave out obvious local references (I couldn’t clear out my cache in such a way that would let Google automatically adjust results based on my location). The results are kind of compelling and yet unsurprising. I will let them speak for themselves, but they do make the anti-corporate power hairs stand up on the back of your neck a little.  Perhaps some day, once we’ve finally paid off all the capitalists’ debt and all the public school teachers are laid off and everybody can attend a quality charter school this is what the students’ ABC’s will look like.

  1. Interesting :O Is it a sad commentary on my cynicism of how ubiquitous corporations are that I’m actually surprised W is “Weather” and not “Wal-Mart” xD
