Google is targeting 100,000 terms associated with online child sexual abuse in a move hailed by David Cameron, who will announce a series of measures to tackle the problem at a cyber-summit in Downing Street. The prime minister said that Google and Yahoo had “come a long way” after the internet firms announced a series of initiatives to try to block access to images of child sexual abuse. Full Article

    Another news item to be filed under WTF! According to the Oxford Dictionary there are about 250,000 words in the English Language.

    The Second Edition of the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary contains full entries for 171,476 words in current use, and 47,156 obsolete words. To this may be added around 9,500 derivative words included as subentries

    Eliminating 100,000 does not leave too many, does it? But it makes a good sound bite – both for Google and the media. And if is not the NSA spying on you, just leave it to Google. As always, in the name of anti-terrorism and child protection. Baaah baahaah

      Joe, the article says “100,000 terms associated with online child sexual abuse”. A term is a grouping of words, so while your information is quite correct, you missed the point a little. With the 250,000 words you mention, there are exponentially more possible phrases or “terms” that can be created. Single words do not usually make very definitive search terms.
