Electronic Wars of Self-Representation

I love stuff like this. The rad-tastic Global Voices reports:

Bloggers in the Philippines are outraged that “a Google search for the word ‘Filipina’ throws back a slew of sites on dating and mail order brides. It’s even worse for Google Image Search.” But the “Pinoy Bloggers” — as they call themselves — aren’t just going to sit back and let this state of affairs continue. They’ve got a plan to link the word “Filipina” to URLs and permalinks to each others’ blog posts that describe women of the Philippines as “excellent, smart and tenacious.”

It’s Google-bombing for good, not evil!
