like they know Google-Fu today

But do people actually know “Google-Fu”? I’d bet less than 1% of Google searchers use operators. Google accommodates people rather than the reverse. If Google were to do a big educational piece on “How to use Google,” that would defeat the point of a simple search engine.

A far better example of this happening at a large scale is with Twitter with # and @, but those are elementary commands. I’m skeptical that a mainstream audience would take the time to learn advance commands for the relatively abstract benefit of doing things more efficiently.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
