You are here: irt.org | FOLDOC | Schachter's Hypothesis

<web> The observation that "Given two unrelated technical terms, an Internet search engine will retrieve only résumés". This was first formulated by Joshua Eli Schachter (http://burri.to/~joshua/) in about 1998, while poring over the uniformly irrelevant pages that resulted from a search he'd run on "+Perl +MAPI" in Altavista.
