Yes, Google is frightening.
If one types in to - find web pages that contain the term "furtherfield.org"
we get 37,900...
If one types net art - you find furtherfield on page 6, on google.
Which would be fine but, we are really should be higher up to reflect
what we do and the involvement of furtherfield and all the projects. It
really does feel as though we have been censored...

was something to do with explicit material on the server (or
somthing), which there isn't. I have emailed google and have totally
ignored regarding this. It is worrying...

A4? This is disturbing; what I don't understand - how do they know the
content? There is a blurred image of breasts, that's all. And "moon"
doesn't give anything away unless someone thinks it has to do with
"mooning". I'd appreciate anything else you could add to this..
